20th International Conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology (CMSB 2022)

September 14-16, 2022, Bucharest, Romania

Invited Speakers

Alessandra Carbone (Sorbonne Université, France)

Gabriela Chiosis (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, USA)

Talk: Targeting and controlling protein-protein interaction networks in disease

Short bio. The Chiosis lab uses a chemical biology approach to understand, diagnose, and treat cellular processes associated with chronic molecular stress, with the ultimate-goal of developing therapeutics and diagnostics for use in the treatment of human disease. The lab has authored >165 scientific articles on biomedical subjects from probe and drug discovery to mechanistic and translational investigations. It holds >500 patents and patent applications on to the discovery of therapeutic agents and diagnostics in human medicine, and also related to methods of treatment. These innovations provide a platform for precision medicine for diagnosis and treatment of disease that is based on the aberrant properties of protein-protein interaction networks. Compounds and diagnostics discovered by the lab are currently in clinical evaluation in cancer and Alzheimer’s disease under license to Samus Therapeutics, a company Dr. Chiosis is a founding member.

Loïc Paulevé (CNRS, Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en Informatique, France)

Talk: Boolean networks as a link between knowledge, data, and quantitative models

Short bio. Loïc Paulevé is a permanent researcher at CNRS in the LaBRI computer science lab at Bordeaux University, France. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from École centrale de Nantes. His research interests are in formal methods for systems biology, with a focus on the theory of Boolean networks and their application to cellular reprogramming.

Alfonso Rodríguez-Patón (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain)

Erik Sonnhammer (Stockholm University, Sweden)

Talk. How to infer accurate gene regulatory networks from gene expression.

Short bio. Erik Sonnhammer is Professor of Bioinformatics at Stockholm University, and previously had the same position at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. He did a Ph.D. in bioinformatics at the Sanger Institute in Cambridge, England. His research interests are in network and systems biology as well as protein evolution and function.
