University at Madrid, Spain; PhD at EMBL Germany; Postdoc at the Gurdon Institute, Cambridge, UK; Group Leader as a Royal Society University Research Fellow and currently as a University Senior Research Fellow, Cambridge, UK. Also a Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge, UK
I am a Professor in Biostatistics and Clinical Research Methodology in the Department of Clinical Medicine at the Miguel Hernández University (Spain).
My research is focused on biostatistics, clinical research methodology, cardiovascular diseases and pediatrics.
Professor of Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
My lab in interested in the epigenetic regulation of germline identity, and how epigenetics influences the organismal response to stress, using the nematode C. elegans as a model system. To address these questions, we use a combination of genetic, molecular, microscopy and genome wide approaches.
An engineer by training with a wide interest in low speed aerodynamics and the fluid dynamics of animal locomotion. PhD topic was the flight of the large pterosaurs. Research Associate at the universities of Bristol and Southampton in the UK.
Professor of Marine Evolution and Conservation.
We apply population genetic/omic theory and data to fundamental and applied aspects in evolution, ecology, and conservation. Our focus is mostly on marine organisms, especially marine mammals.
National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Institutes of Health. Editor, Journal of Molecular Biology; Associate Editor, BMC Evolutionary Biology. Associate Lecturer, Johns Hopkins University
Research interests: Formal methods, security and privacy, big data analytics, computational systems biology
Recently, I extended my research into computational systems biology, where I aim to develop efficient algorithms and tools for the analysis of large biological systems.
Elena Papaleo completed her PhD in 2006 and Post-doctoral from 2007-2009 at the Department of Biotechnology and Bioscience at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy) in the group of Prof. Luca De Gioia and Prof. Piercarlo Fantucci. She was then appointed as Adjunct Professor in Computational Biology at the University of Milano-Bicocca from 2010-2012. Afterwards, she was Senior Post-Doctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Lindorff-Larsen at the Department of Biology of the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) from 2011-2015. She has been Visiting Researcher at many international institutes including the group of Prof. Salvador Ventura at the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (IBB, Barcelona, Spain) and the group of Prof. Francesco Luigi Gervasio at the Spanish National Cancer Research Center (CNIO, Madrid, Spain). In August 2015, she joined as Group Leader of the Computational Biology (CBL) Laboratory at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center (Copenhagen, Denmark). She has authored more than 50 scientific papers as main or senior author and she is Academic Editor of PLOS One, Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences, PeerJ and Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling.
