Dr. Ma’ayan is a Mount Sinai Endowed Professor in Bioinformatics, Professor in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences and Director of the Mount Sinai Center for Bioinformatics. Dr. Ma'ayan is also Principal Investigator of the NIH-funded BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center and 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 machine learning and other statistical mining techniques to study how intracellular regulatory systems function as networks to control cellular processes such as differentiation, dedifferentiation, apoptosis and proliferation. The Ma'ayan Laboratory develops software systems to help experimental biologists form novel hypotheses from high-throughput data, while aiming to better understand the structure and function of regulatory networks in mammalian cellular and multi-cellular systems.
