Jun Zhu, PhD is a professor in Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and a member of the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology. Dr. Zhu was trained in both computer science and biomedical science. His research focuses on methodologies for integrating diverse data (e.g. genetic, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic data and etc.) into probabilistic graphic networks for elucidating complex human diseases, as well as method development for analyzing and comparing disease-related networks. Before joining Mount Sinai, he worked in both industry (Amgen, Inc, and Rosetta/Merck & CO, Inc) and academia (Sage Bionetworks, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center).
