John Tsang, Ph.D. Head of Bioinformatics, Trans-NIH, USA

Dr. Tsang, Investigator, NIAID, NIH.
Head, Systems Genomics and Bioinformatics Unit, Laboratory of Systems Biology (formerly the Program in Systems Immunology and Infectious Disease Modeling)
Assistant Director, Trans-NIH Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity, and Inflammation.
Dr. Tsang received B.A.Sc. (1998) and M.Math. (2000) in Computer Engineering and Computer Science, respectively, from the University of Waterloo in Canada. He then joined Rosetta Inpharmatics as a Bioinformatics Scientist in 2000 to work on annotating the then freshly sequenced human genome using DNA microarrays. He subsequently joined Caprion Proteomics as Bioinformatics Group Leader before enrolling in the Biophysics Graduate Program at Harvard University, where he received his Ph.D. in 2008 for research conducted in Alexander van Oudenaarden’s Systems Biology Laboratory at MIT. He worked on both computational and wet laboratory projects during his Ph.D. research and his dissertation focuses on dissecting microRNA functions and networks. He returned to Rosetta’s Department of Research Genetics after earning his Ph.D. to work on the genetics of gene expression as a Senior Research Scientist before joining the Laboratory of Systems Biology of NIAID to establish the Systems Genomics and Bioinformatics Unit in August, 2010. He also serves as the head of bioinformatics at the Trans-NIH Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity, and Inflammation, where he leads a group of computational biologists to analyze and integrate multiple types of large-scale data sets to study the human immune system in health and disease.
