Leland Taylor

I am a computational biologist and graduate student in a collaborative program between the National Institutes of Health (USA) and the University of Cambridge (UK). Under the supervision of Francis Collins and Ewan Birney, my research aims to harness the signals of genomic regions associated with risk for common diseases to understand disease etiology. Specifically, I am developing methods to integrate genetic information and data from high throughput molecular profiling technologies (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.) to identify genes and molecular pathways that influence disease progression, as such knowledge will ultimately facilitate the development of targeted therapies.
