I just happened to meet Eugenia Lyashenko, a PhD Candidate (at Columbia University) who is using computational methods to understand cell signaling in cancer. What is interesting about her work is that the methods could be applied to study signaling across a range of cancer cells.
More specifically, Miss Lyashenko is using Probabilistic approaches to cell signaling models and to assess drug responses. Having done her BA from MIT, she hopes that her current work could help make breakthroughs in application of computational techniques to solve some biomedical problems.
Way to go. We hope she can tell us more about her work as we go!
