Ariel Feiglin completed his undergraduate studies and Ph.D. in Computational Biology at Bar Ilan University, Israel, under the guidance of Professors Yanay Ofran and Ron Unger. Feiglin’s thesis focused on computationally identifying novel interactions between drugs and proteins (based on their 3D structure and electrostatics), and predicting their effect on molecular networks. At DBMI he has shifted his focus towards tissue specific gene modules and their role in disease with a goal of systematically identifying molecular modules that contribute to the tissue specific nature of disease, and linking these finding with electronic databases such as health records. Such findings will lead to a better understanding of shared tissues in disease and comorbidities.
