Miguel A. Andrade
Miguel Andrade received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 1994. He trained at the post-doctoral level at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg and Cambridge with Dr. Chris Sander and Dr. Peer Bork. His post-doctoral studies involved the development and application of computational methods for the analysis of gene and protein function and structure. From 2003 to 2007, he was Scientist and Head of the Bioinformatics Group of the Ottawa Health Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada. In September 2007 Miguel moved to the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin to start a Computational Biology group. Dr. Andrade’s group develops and applies a range of computational techniques and tools to use high-throughput genomics data to elucidate gene and protein function, with a special focus on the mechanisms of human disease. Those techniques include data and text mining, biological sequence comparison, database analysis, and statistical analysis of biological data. The latest group efforts are concentrated on projects that study gene and protein function in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disease in collaboration with experimental and computational groups. Dr. Andrade’s research has been published in scientific journals that include Nature, Science, Nature Genetics, and Nucleic Acids Research.
