Working in the comparative genomics field to study spontaneous development of canine and human glioma with emphasis on characterizing evolutionarily constrained (epi)genetic elements and the tissue context during oncogenesis.
Dr. Amin received his Ph.D. in cancer computational biology from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX in 01/2017. His thesis work was carried out at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, and was focused on understanding long non-coding RNA interactions in the context of chromatin organization using integrated analyses of publicly available expression, epigenomic and chromatin interaction data. Before completing Ph.D., Dr. Amin received research training (2008-2011) in computational biology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA where he worked on the assessment of gene expression profiling as predictive biomarker in multiple myeloma. Previously, Dr. Amin received his first professional degree in medicine, MBBS from the Medical College of Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Vadodara, India in 2005.
