Francesco Iorio
Senior Bioinformatician - Saez-Rodriguez research group

In 2006, I was awarded a Degree in Computer Science (“Laurea”, 5 years University study, equivalent to master) by the University of Salerno (Italy). From February 2007 to October 2007 I was a research associate at the Systems, Synthetic and Computational Biology Laboratory (di Bernardo’s Lab) of the TeleThon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM) and from November 2007 to August 2010 I have been a PhD student in Computer Science and Computational Biology in a program that was part of a joint initiative between the University of Salerno and the TIGEM. My PhD project was mainly focused on computational methods for drug discovery, machine learning techniques supporting gene regulatory network inference, and complex network theory. I joined the Systems Biomedicine group as visiting student in August 2011. From March 2011 I am an ESPOD fellow and I am working on an integrative analysis framework for predicting and dissecting drug susceptibility in cancer. This project combines both in-silico and "wet-lab" experimental research and is hosted at the EBI by the Systems Biomedicine group and at the Sanger Institute by the Genomic of Drug Sensitivity in Cancer project led by Ultan McDermott and Mathew Garnett. My Erdős number is 4.
