Dr. Teresa Przytycka

Teresa Przytycka, PhD, senior investigator in the Computational Biology Department of the Nationwide Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) Nationwide Center for Biotechnology Info, has been chosen as a 2021 Fellow of the Global Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

ICSB recognized Dr. Przytycka for her elementary algorithmic contributions to a broad selection of complications in computational systems biology, especially in community evaluation, community-based mostly techniques to uncover ailment genes, community reconstruction, regulatory roles of DNA conformation dynamics and RNA aptamer evaluation. 

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

An eighteen-yr veteran of NLM, Dr. Przytycka potential customers the Algorithms for Computational and Programs Biology (AlgoCSB) analysis team, which develops computational approaches that progress systems-degree comprehension of most cancers and other elaborate conditions, and the principles of gene regulation.

The Nationwide Library of Medicine (NLM) is a chief in analysis in biomedical informatics and knowledge science and the world’s largest biomedical library. NLM conducts and supports analysis in approaches for recording, storing, retrieving, preserving, and communicating well being info. NLM results in resources and applications that are made use of billions of times every yr by hundreds of thousands of people today to obtain and examine molecular biology, biotechnology, toxicology, environmental well being, and well being services info.
