Post Doctoral Fellow

I'm eager learning the mode of action of anti cancer drugs, specifically metallodrugs, through employment of bioinformatics tools and gene expression analysis.

Irene Guberman ​
Irene Guberman
MD-PhD student

I am interested in using evolutionary data to understand biological mechanisms in health and disease. My current project focuses on drug repositioning for Rett syndrome through phylogenetic profiling.​​

Doron Stupp ​​​​​
Doron Stupp, M.Sc.
MD-PhD student

I’m interested in developing machine learning approaches for medical therap​​eutic and research purpose​​s. My current research focuses on integrating co-evolution data using machine learning to discover functionally related genes, predict genes related to orphan diseases and identify drug repositioning opportunities for these diseases.​​​
