August 16, 2017
“Big Data” is a driving force in cancer research today. Sifting through the data from thousands of cancer genomes will help researchers understand what drives cancer, and help them make predictions about therapies that will be most beneficial to individual patients.
To help make sense of these data, and in particular, to apply the findings to pediatric cancers, computational biologist Siyuan Zheng was recruited in 2017 to join the faculty at The University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio. He was an instructor in genomic medicine The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This talented researcher was retained in Texas with the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT. He joined the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute.
