Associate Director and Senior Group LeaderGenome Institute of Singapore
Niranjan Nagarajan is an Associate Director and Senior Group Leader at the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS). He is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine and Department of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Nagarajan received a BA in Computer Science and Mathematics from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2000, and a PhD in Computer Science from Cornell University in 2006. He did his postdoctoral work at the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Maryland working on problems in genome assembly and metagenomics. Currently, his research focuses on developing cutting-edge genome analytic tools and using them to study the role of microbial communities in human health. His team conducts research at the interface of genetics, computer science and microbiology, focusing on using a systems biology approach to understand host-microbiome-pathogen interactions in various disease conditions.
