Igor Jurisica, PhD
Dr. Jurisica is a Canada Research Chair in Integrative Computational Biology, a Scientist at the Ontario Cancer Institute, University Health Network since 2000, Associate Professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto, Adjunct Professor at School of Computing Science, Queen's University, and a Visiting Scientist at the IBM Centre for Advanced Studies. He earned his Dipl. Ing. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Slovak Technical University in 1991, M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 1993 and 1998 respectively. Dr. Jurisica's research focuses on computational biology, and representation, analysis and visualization of high dimensional data generated by high-throughput biology experiments. Of particular interest is the use of comparative analysis for the mining of integrated datasets such as protein—protein interaction, gene expression profiling, and high-throughput screens for protein crystallization.
Dennis A. Wigle, MD, PhD
Since August 2006, Dennis Wigle has been a clinician-scientist at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center in Rochester Minnesota. He is a practicing thoracic surgeon with an interest in thoracic oncology. His laboratory investigates the genetic basis and molecular sequence of events underlying thoracic malignancies. He holds an MD from the University of Toronto and a PhD from the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. His interests include the application of novel computational methods to the analysis of high-throughput data in cancer biology.
