Speaker Profile

PhD, Director of Computational Biology, Insitro

Biography
Angela is the head of computational biology at insitro. She is passionate about extracting meaningful information from biomedical datasets and use that to improve disease understanding and drug development. Angela holds a BSc and MSc in Biomedical Engineering and a PhD in Systems Biology. Her PhD work became the foundation of a new direction of thinking on why cancer develops resistance to chemotherapy, the major reason for treatment failure. Before moving to insitro, she led the Data Science platform at CZ Biohub. There she made significant contributions for the whole organism cell atlas projects including the first whole mouse cell atlas, the first aging cell atlas, and Tabula Sapiens, the first Human Cell Atlas drafts. She is also a founder and core member of Open Problems in Single Cell, a community effort to improve multimodal data analysis by both generating gold standard datasets and benchmarking metrics and infrastructure.
