Robert Beckman, M.D. is currently Professor of Oncology and of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, and Biomathematics at Georgetown University Medical Center. Dr. Beckman is an oncology clinical researcher and mathematical biologist, whose goals are to develop cancer therapies and to improve the way cancer therapies are developed and deployed in patients, with emphasis on personalized medicine, tumor heterogeneity, and tumor evolution.
Dr. Simina Boca joined ICBI in April 2014. Her research primarily focuses on the development of methods and tools for the analysis of "omics" data, including genomics and metabolomics, especially as they relate to cancer. Further areas of substantive interest include cancer epidemiology and population genetics.
Before joining Georgetown, Dr. Boca was a postdoctoral fellow in the Biostatistics Branch within the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute. She holds a Ph.D. in Biostatistics and an M.H.S. in Bioinformatics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Dr. Yuriy Gusev has over 20 years of experience in academic and industry research in the fields of bioinformatics, systems biology, biomarker discovery, and computational modeling of biological systems. He has over 70 peer-reviewed publications in the areas of microRNA, gene, and protein expression profiling in cancer and other human diseases; and quantitative analysis and mathematical modeling of cancer progression and chromosomal instability. He is a Bioinformatics Lead at the Georgetown Innovation Center for Biomedical Informatics (ICBI) and he is responsible for directing the analytical team in the development of pipelines for multi-omics and Next Generation Sequencing data analysis and integration.
Dr. Subha Madhavan is Director of the Innovation Center for Biomedical Informatics (ICBI) at the Georgetown University Medical Center and Associate Professor of Oncology. She is a world-class leader in data science, clinical informatics and health IT who is responsible for several biomedical informatics efforts including the software development of Georgetown Database of Cancer (G-DOC) a resource for both researchers and clinicians to realize the goals of personalized medicine and co-directs Lombardi Cancer Center’s Biostatistics and Bioinformatics shared resource.
Associate Professor, Bioinformatics
Dr. Peter McGarvey is Research Associate Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology, Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC). Has academic and commercial experience in molecular biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics and software development, and his research interests include genomic and proteomic analysis, biological databases, and data visualization.
Dr. Shaojun Tang joined ICBI in January 2016. His research primarily focuses on the development of tools and methods for the analysis of cancer immunotherapy data, including breast cancer and melanoma datasets. Dr. Tang is also interested in the study of multi-'omics' data using various machine learning tools. Further areas of substantive interest include splicing analysis, biomarker discovery and health informatics data mining.
Dr. Matthew McCoy joined ICBI as a new faculty member in November 2016. Interested in using computational methods and multi-scale modeling to study the underlying mechanisms of genetic disease, Dr. McCoy's current research aims to understand how genomic mutations alter protein function, and how functional changes impact the emergent behavior in biological systems.
