Biography

Dr. Ma'ayan is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Systems Therapeutics, Principal Investigator of the BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center and Principal Investigator of the Mount Sinai Knowledge Management Center for Illuminating the Druggable Genome.

The Ma'ayan Laboratory applies computational and mathematical methods to study the complexity of regulatory networks in mammalian cells. His research team applies graph-theory algorithms, machine-learning techniques and dynamical modeling to study how intracellular regulatory systems function as networks to control cellular processes such as differentiation, de-differentiation, apoptosis and proliferation. The Ma'ayan Laboratory develops software systems to help experimental biologists form novel hypotheses from high-throughput data, and develop theories about the structure and function of regulatory networks in mammalian systems.
