2019 Senior Vice Chancellor’s Laureate Lecture Series
Speaker: Ivet Bahar, PhD
Title: Distinguished Professor, John K. Vries Professor, and Chair of Computational and Systems Biology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Lecture Title: Network Models in Biology: From Biomolecular Mechanisms to Chromosomal Dynamics to Systems Pharmacology

Introducing Dr. Bahar and leading a discussion following the lecture will be Arthur S. Levine, MD, Pitt’s senior vice chancellor for the health sciences and John and Gertrude Petersen Dean of Medicine.

Dr. Bahar’s research has advanced our understanding of the basic principles and mechanisms of function of biological systems at multiple scales, from molecular to cellular and systems levels. She and colleagues have developed novel theoretical and computational models and methods, using fundamental theories and methods of physical sciences and engineering and advances in machine learning to help understand the dynamics of molecular machines, large complexes and assemblies, and biomolecular interactions in the cell.

Dr. Bahar explores protein–protein and protein–drug interactions and their effects on cellular signaling, regulation, and apoptotic events, using various theoretical and computational approaches. Broadly, Dr. Bahar seeks to translate knowledge from molecular-to-cellular computations and theoretical modeling into biomedical, clinical, and pharmacological applications. She and her colleagues also enable the effective dissemination of tools and training to a new generation of scientists to use cutting-edge methods of physical sciences, engineering, and machine learning to advance research and technology development in life sciences.

Dr. Bahar’s honors and awards include a Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award from Pitt and the 2019 Kadir Has Outstanding Achievement Award from Kadir Has University in Istanbul, among many others. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey, and her chemistry PhD at Istanbul Technical University.

Please join us for the December 3 lecture by one of today’s renowned scientists.

Oncomine Days: Clinical Oncology Education Series

Flier

Please Join Thermo Fisher, UPMC, and the sciVelo/Innovation Institute for a day of seminars focusing on next generation sequencing for clinical and translational research. Dr. Steve Shapiro, UPMC’s CMO/CSO will kick off the day, followed by seminars related to precision genomics, immuno-oncology, and immune response profiling. During lunch, learn more about how NGS has been implemented at UPMC for solid tumor profiling and the impact is has on patients and treatment selection. Finish off the day with learning more about the use of methylation as a important biomarker for prostate cancer and other indications. Full agenda to follow.
