Biography

Ali Masoudi-Nejad received his Ph.D. in genetics/genomics with Prof. Takashi Endo from Kyoto University (京都大学), Japan. He then did his first Post-Doc with Prof. Robbie Waugh at James Hutton Institute in Scotland and Prof. Paul H. Dear from MRC-LMB, Cambridge, UK. He returned to the Kyoto University and did two consecutive Post-Docs with Prof. Minoru Kanehisa, co-founder of The GenBank at NCBI and founder of the KEGG and Prof. Susumu Goto in bioinformatics and systems biology, respectively. He then returned to Iran in 2006 and founded the Laboratory of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, LBB (http://LBB.ut.ac.ir) at the University of Tehran. He is now associate professor of systems biology and bioinformatics. His main research interest focuses on: • Computational systems biology • Cancer modeling and network biology • GWAS and PheWAS study with co-expression networks analysis • Bioinformatics • Systems biology and brain • Systems biology approach to anti-cancer therapy • Analysis of biological networks • Drug-target and disease networks • Genome-scale network reconstruction and pathway modeling • MicroRNA and RNAi pathway reconstruction • Genome Scale lncRNA analysis • Protein-Protein interaction networks
