Dr. Teresa Przytycka

Teresa Przytycka, PhD, senior investigator in the Computational Biology Department of the Countrywide Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) Countrywide Middle for Biotechnology Data, has been picked as a 2021 Fellow of the Global Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

ICSB acknowledged Dr. Przytycka for her essential algorithmic contributions to a wide variety of difficulties in computational programs biology, specifically in network examination, network-dependent methods to uncover disorder genes, network reconstruction, regulatory roles of DNA conformation dynamics and RNA aptamer examination. 

“Dr. Przytycka’s investigation has accelerated development in several parts of biomedical science,” said NLM Director Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD. “We are pretty very pleased of this recognition of her exceptional perform and her contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics.”

An 18-year veteran of NLM, Dr. Przytycka potential customers the Algorithms for Computational and Programs Biology (AlgoCSB) investigation team, which develops computational strategies that progress programs-stage knowing of cancer and other elaborate ailments, and the rules of gene regulation.
