Valentin Dinu Ph.D.

Associate Faculty, Biodesign Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics
Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Informatics


Valentin Dinu's research interests are the assessment, improvement, and development of computational approaches, software applications and databases that will facilitate the management, integration and analysis of diverse sources of biomedical information. Some of Valentin Dinu's teaching and research areas include 1) the use of biological domain knowledge to supplement statistical analysis and data mining methods to identify genes and pathways associated with disease, and 2) the exploration of database modeling approaches for managing large and heterogeneous data sets from both clinical and biosciences domains. Application domains include next generation sequencing (NGS), genome wide association studies (GWAS), and immunosignature protein arrays.
