Harshpreet Chandok, M.S.

Bioinformatics Analyst I

Next Generation Sequencing Analysis, Computational Cancer Biology, Pharmacology, Precision Medicine, Translational Research

I hold a Masters in Bioinformatics minor in Health Informatics. My dissertation revolved around literature based discovery utilized to mine existing drug interaction evidences in the clinical trial Phase I and II studies and predicting novel drug interaction signals with mentions of adverse related events. Few interesting projects during my masters includes mining the highthroughput data to understand changes in gene expression, methylation and variant profiles in cancers such as Glioblastoma Multiforme and lung cancer using the computational methods and systems biology approaches. My research interests are to apply computational and machine learning approaches to understand the molecular mechanisms and biological complexities in tumors leading to better prediction of treatments.
