IBI Director Dr. Jason Moore will lead a new Exposure Biology Informatics Core (EBIC) as part of the Penn Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET). This new core will be co-lead by IBI Bioinformatics Core Director Dr. Paul Wang and will work closely with environmental health and toxicology researchers at Penn to help process, […]
IBI faculty member Mitchell Lazar, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues published a paper in Cell showing how single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can influence anti-diabetic drug response. This work has important implications for the development of precision medicine strategies for common diseases such as type 2 diabetes. For more information see the Penn Medicine press release.
Patricia M. Williams Term Professor in Biology Junhyong Kim navigates the complex computations of single-cell genomics. For more information see this post on the Penn School of Arts and Sciences website.
IBI senior fellow Dr. Frederick Bushman is part of a Penn Medicine team that received a $7.5 Million grant to expand their research to engineer T cells to be resistant to HIV-1 infection. For more information see the Penn Medicine press release.

Penn Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI) faculty member Christian Stoeckert, Ph.D. (Research Professor of Genetics) is a co-investigator on a new study to develop the Eukaryotic Pathogen Genomics Database, or EuPathDB. This project is funded by a $4.3 million contract from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and will play a very important role improving […]
A new effort mapping 24-hr patterns of expression for thousands of genes in 12 different mouse organs – five years in the making – provides important clues about how the role of timing may influence the way drugs work in the body. A study detailing this veritable “atlas” of gene oscillations,never before described in mammals, is published […]
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Blanca Himes as a new Assistant Professor in the Institute for Biomedical Informatics, Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Center for Genetics and Complex Traits. Blanca obtained her Ph.D. in Medical Physics and Bioinformatics from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology and was a Biomedical Informatics research fellow […]
