A new computational method can improve the accuracy of gene expression analyses, which are increasingly used to diagnose and monitor cancers and are a major tool for basic biological research.
PITTSBURGH—Andreas Pfenning, assistant professor in Carnegie Mellon University’s Computational Biology Department, is part of an all-star research team that aims to find new ways to translate genetic findings into new therapies for Alzheimer’s disease.
Presenting the latest episode of the CBD Office Visit Series featuring Dr. Phillip Compeau! We stopped by Phillip’s office to chat about our newest degree, the Bachelor of Science in Computational Biology (BSCB) as well as the Master of Science in Computational Biology (MSCB). View the video below, and visit our Youtube page for more videos from […]
Dr. Andreas Pfenning’s lab will be one of 9 labs to collaborate via the Collaboration to Infer Regulatory Circuits and to Uncover Innovative Therapeutic Strategies (CIRCUITS) two-year, $4 million Cure Alzheimer’s Fund grant! More information about the CIRCUITS grant can be found at http://curealz.org/circuits . Congrats Dr. Pfenning!
Ease into the holidays with a new episode from the CBD Office Visit Series featuring Dr. Wei Wu! We stopped by Wei’s office to for an impromptu chat about her work using computational approaches to complex diseases like asthma and drug addiction.

We are embarking on a major expansion in the general area of Systems Biology. We intend to make multiple tenure track hires over the next few years in this area. We are looking for researchers pursuing computational and/or experimental approaches, particularly those working on the generation and/or analysis of high throughput genomics and imaging data. […]
We recently held a Facebook Live event with Phillip Compeau, Assistant Teaching Professor in Computational Biology; Robert Murphy, Department Head of Computational Biology; and Kathryn Roeder, Professor of Statistics and Computational Biology; where we took questions about the B.S. in Computational Biology program. Please watch the video below to learn more!
Graduates in High Demand by Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science will launch a new bachelor’s degree program in computational biology next fall, complementing the Computational Biology Department’s existing Ph.D. and master’s degree programs. The undergraduate degree program at one of the world’s leading computer science schools will prepare students […]
