Foundations of Data Science
Dana Pe’er is an adjunct professor in the Departments of Biological Sciences at Columbia University. She received a Ph.D in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and continued her post-doctoral studies with George Church at Harvard Medical School. In particular, we study how genetic variation alters regulatory network function, subsequently phenotype in health and disease. This path has led her to explore how systems biology approaches can be used to personalize cancer care, by developing models that predict how individual tumors will respond to certain drug and drug combinations. Dana is recipient of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award, NIH Directors New Innovator Award, NSF CAREER award, Stand Up To Cancer Innovative Research Grant and a Packard Fellow in Science and Engineering.
