    Center for Innovation in Brain Science Visiting Scholar Lecture

    Rui Chang, PhD

    Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics and Genomic Science

    Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology

    Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York

    Center for Innovation in Brain Science Visiting Scholar Lecture

     
    Rui Chang is Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and the Icahn Institute of Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

    Dr. Chang has developed an innovative top-down & bottom-up predictive network model which integrates pan-omics data to infer the causal and predictive network model. This model supports quantitative prediction on molecular phenotypes, such as gene expression profile, cell state transitions and cellular dynamics under various environments and perturbation. Dr. Chang has successfully applied his method to systematically model various diseases, e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, IBD, melanoma and predict experiment-validated recipes to reprogram human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) from somatic cells.

    Dr. Chang has close collaborations with industrial companies and academic institutes. He is an inventor on several patents, and an expert in modeling and simulating biological networks to predict molecular functions.
