NLM Senior Investigator Teresa Przytycka, PhD, Selected as International Society for Computational Biology FellowMarch 3, 2021
Teresa Przytycka, PhD, senior investigator in the Computational Biology Branch of the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) National Center for Biotechnology Information, has been selected as a 2021 Fellow of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
ICSB recognized Dr. Przytycka for her fundamental algorithmic contributions to a wide range of problems in computational systems biology, especially in network analysis, network-based approaches to uncover disease genes, network reconstruction, regulatory roles of DNA conformation dynamics and RNA aptamer analysis.
“Dr. Przytycka’s research has accelerated progress in many areas of biomedical science,” said NLM Director Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD. “We are very proud of this recognition of her excellent work and her contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics.”
An 18-year veteran of NLM, Dr. Przytycka leads the Algorithms for Computational and Systems Biology (AlgoCSB) research group, which develops computational methods that advance systems-level understanding of cancer and other complex diseases, and the principles of gene regulation.
