T. M. Murali

Professor // Computer Science, Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology


Murali is the Associate Program Director for CTE. His overall research goal is to build phenomenological and predictive models of molecular interaction networks. In the context of CTE, his long term goal is to define a synthesis of systems biology and tissue engineering so that seamlessly intertwined computational and experimental models will drive the next generation of advances in both fields.
