Research Fellow in Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School
Biomedical Informatics Research Training Fellow, 2018-2019
Mentor: Zak Kohane, MD, PhD

Shilpa Nadimpalli Kobren earned her PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University, where she worked under the supervision of Dr. Mona Singh. Kobren's doctoral research focused on developing novel computational methods to detect and interpret protein interaction and cellular network perturbations across species, across healthy human individuals, and across individuals with disease. Kobren's current research leverages genome-scale sequencing and molecular data in the context of heterogeneous clinical data and electronic health record data to derive insights on the molecular mechanisms underlying rare, undiagnosed human diseases.
