- Clinical Genomics. In collaboration with The Center for Translational Medical Systems at UCSD, contribution to the bioinformatics side of the discovery of molecular surrogates in the diagnosis of brain tumors Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). Several solution and approaches have been devised or adapted to further characterize the relationship between the molecular and radiological paradigm, including the definition of alternative approaches for the selection of meaningful genes extracted from high throughput experiments, accounting for the problem of the multiple hypothesis correction.
