Vijayalakshmi Chelliah
BioModels Project Leader

Vijayalakshmi (Viji) Chelliah has several years of experience in bioinformatics, computational structural/systems biology and modelling. She manages the content of BioModels, and drives the associated projects, which involves systems analysis of certain disease mechanisms.

Prior to joining EMBL-EBI, she did her PhD at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, where she investigated and generated an evolutionary analysis of the local structural environment of amino acid and developed a method to predict the functional sites of protein families and applied it in sequence-structure homology recognition and protein-protein docking. During her postdoctoral research at the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), London, she worked on de-novo protein structure prediction, refinement and ranking of the predicted protein models based on the functional site potential.
