Cancer Data Science Lab, NCI, NIH

Eytan Ruppin (MD, PhD)  research is focused on developing and harnessing data science approaches for the integration of multi-omics data to better understand the pathogenesis of cancer, its evolution and treatment. We collaborate with many experimental cancer labs, aiming to develop and utilize computational approaches to jointly gain an integrative view of the systems we study. Together with our collaborators, we aim to predict and test novel drug targets and biomarkers to treat cancer more effectively.  Before joining the NCI, Eytan has been a Computer Science and Medicine professor at Tel-Aviv University (1995-2014) and a Computer Science professor and director of the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Maryland (2014-2018).
