Leadership

Charles M. Perou, PhD

The School of Medicine has launched a new Computational Medicine Program, aiming to channel UNC’s strength in computational biology, the basic sciences, and clinical research, toward making significant advances in clinical care for patients.

Co-directors of the new program are Timothy Elston, PhD, professor of pharmacology and director of the Curriculum in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, and Charles M. Perou, PhD, the May Goldman Shaw Distinguished Professor of Molecular Oncology at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, and professor of genetics, and of pathology and laboratory medicine.

“The Computational Medicine Program will enable teams of scientists from across the university to come together to address problems related to biomedical research,” Elston said. “Our ultimate goal is to generate models, combining many different types of data, that will enable us to predict outcomes of treatment, and design new ways of thinking about treating disease.”

 

Diversity Statement

The UNC Health Care System and the UNC School of Medicine values all people throughout our organization, regardless of background, lifestyle, and culture. The Computational Medicine Program is committed to workforce diversity and inclusion in a supportive environment.
