Virginia Tech Scholar of the Week - CS Associate Professor T.M. Murali

Publish Date: 03/25/2010

The Office of the Vice President for Research recognizes T. M. Murali, associate professor of computer science, as the Virginia Tech Scholar of the Week for his research on computational systems biology to unravel the complex network of relationships among the molecules in a cell.

Murali is working in the area of cellular response networks and their building blocks, automatic prediction of gene functions, and prediction and analysis of host-pathogen protein-protein interactions. A recently-started collaborative project on "Transcriptional Signatures in 3D Liver Mimetic Architectures" will use a combination of experimental and computational approaches to study cell-cell communications in engineered tissues that mimic the liver. His group will develop algorithms to unravel gene networks activated within cells in the liver mimics.
