Dr. Michal Brylinski

Principal Investigator –Computational Biology, Louisiana State University

Dr. Michal Brylinski (PhD: Jagiellonian University) is an Associate Professor of the Department of Biological Science at Louisiana State University. His research interests include System Biology, Chemical Systems Biology and drug discovery and design.He has published over 80 papersand his research has been funded by NIH. Dr. Brylinski’s research incorporates multi-dimensional biological data into computer-aided drug discovery and design. He studies drug-oriented interactomes by combining high-level “omics” data, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, glycomics, and genome-wide association studies with molecular and atomic-level modeling of medically relevant biomolecules and interactions among them. He also applies deep learning technologies to integrate, analyze, and classify large-scale experimental and computer-generated biological data.
