Dr. Teresa Przytycka

Teresa Przytycka, PhD, senior investigator in the Computational Biology Branch of the Countrywide Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) Countrywide Heart for Biotechnology Data, has been selected as a 2021 Fellow of the Intercontinental Modern society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

ICSB regarded Dr. Przytycka for her fundamental algorithmic contributions to a huge vary of problems in computational programs biology, particularly in network assessment, network-based mostly ways to uncover ailment genes, network reconstruction, regulatory roles of DNA conformation dynamics and RNA aptamer assessment. 

“Dr. Przytycka’s investigation has accelerated development in a lot of regions of biomedical science,” explained NLM Director Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD. “We are very very pleased of this recognition of her superb work and her contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics.”

An 18-12 months veteran of NLM, Dr. Przytycka potential customers the Algorithms for Computational and Systems Biology (AlgoCSB) investigation group, which develops computational procedures that advance programs-amount comprehension of cancer and other complicated health conditions, and the principles of gene regulation.

The Countrywide Library of Drugs (NLM) is a chief in investigation in biomedical informatics and facts science and the world’s biggest biomedical library. NLM conducts and supports investigation in procedures for recording, storing, retrieving, preserving, and speaking health info. NLM creates sources and instruments that are applied billions of occasions each 12 months by hundreds of thousands of folks to access and assess molecular biology, biotechnology, toxicology, environmental health, and health companies info.
