Personal profile


ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences


Zhidong Tu works on developing systems approaches to study disease networks. By integrating large scale genomic and genetic information, he has worked on various problems including signaling pathway inference, drug target gene discovery, and biomarker identification. Dr. Tu received his PhD from Computational Biology program at University of Southern California. He then worked in the Genetics group at Rosetta Inpharmatics, a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc to study network of genes whose perturbation lead to type 2 diabetes. He later moved to Merck Boston site to work on cancer drug discovery, where the goal was to combine gene expression, sequence variation, drug response, drug-drug interaction to identify most effective medicine for cancer patients.
