Julián Candia is a Staff Scientist at the Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity and Inflammation at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD, USA). He earned his degree as Licenciado en Fisica (approximately equivalent to joint B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics) from the University of La Plata (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 1999 and his Ph.D. degree in physics from the same university in 2004. Candia's research interests are focused on analyzing large-scale biological datasets with a variety of computational and analytical techniques at the crossroads of physics, statistics, and computer science. His particular interests are in integrating multiple types of biomedical information, including cell-biological and biophysical information, for example, gene and microRNA expression, cell shapes, and immunophenotypes, with the goal of contributing innovative ideas to the most pressing problems in human immunology.
