About this Class

Please join us on May 31 when Harvard University’s John Quackenbush, Ph.D., will present “Why Networks Matter: Embracing Biological Complexity.” Dr. Quackenbush will share multiple examples illustrating the importance of network models. He draws on his work in cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and the analysis of data from 38 tissues provided by the Genotype-Tissue Expression project. Learn how researchers can use these models to explore the development and progression of the disease and new ways to identify therapeutics.

Dr. Quackenbush is a computational biology and bioinformatics professor and Chair of the Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is also a professor at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
