Dr. Dario Ghersi
- School of Interdisciplinary Informatics, Associate Professor
In 2004 I received an M.D. from the University of Genoa with a thesis on computational immunology. From 2004 to 2005 I worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Rheumatology at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City. In 2005 I enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Computational Biology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine working on the structural bioinformatics of protein binding, and I graduated in 2010. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University from 2010 to 2014, where I worked on large-scale genome sequencing data. In 2011 I was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the American-Italian Cancer Foundation. I joined the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2014 as an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Interdisciplinary Informatics.
