Computational genomics and large-scale data analysis/mining
Our lab develops and applies computational methods for building predictive and network models of complex biological processes and diseases. These data-driven methods have become critical in the new era biology, which is witnessing an explosion of the amount and types of data like never before. Using such approaches, we have gained successful insights into immunological processes, large-scale interactions between genes and proteins and survival of breast cancer patients. We also have a continuing interest in the computational prediction of protein function and the development of novel data mining and machine learning methods. For more details of our work, check out our lab website.
We have built successful collaborations with immunologists and cancer and cardiovascular specialists, with many more being planned. We are a small lab right now, because of which the PI can pay more attention to lab members' projects and problems. We are a completely computational or bioinformatics lab right now, so some computing experience will be appreciated, but not necessary. The main requirement is a strong motivation to learn and excel. If you are interested in joining us (we hope you are!), send an email to email@example.com to set up a time for discussion. We are located within the Genomics Institute's suite on the 3rd floor of the Icahn Medical Institute.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr. Pandey has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
