Past Recipients of the Gilbert S. Omenn Computational Proteomics Award
Gilbert S. Omenn Computational Proteomics Award
This award recognizes the essential nature of computational methodology and software in proteomics. Specifically, this award acknowledges the specific achievements of scientists that have developed bioinformatics, computational, statistical methods and/or software used by the proteomics community, broadly defined. The award is named in honor of Gil Omenn, a US HUPO Past President, leader of the Human Proteome Project, and influential proteomics researcher. Nominations well be held for three years.
2024 Recipient: Parag Mallick, Stanford University
Parag Mallick is an Associate Professor at Stanford University. Originally trained as an engineer and biochemist, his research spans proteomics, computational and experimental systems biology, cancer biology and nanotechnology. Dr. Mallick received his B.S. in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis. He then obtained his Ph.D. from UCLA in Chemistry & Biochemistry, where he worked with Dr. David Eisenberg. He completed his post-doctoral studies at The Institute for Systems Biology with Dr. Ruedi Aebersold.
In addition to developing computational proteomics methods the Mallick lab has been pioneering systems-biology approaches towards understanding disease mechanisms, discovering biomarkers and enabling personalized medicine. In addition, his group has been developing model-based and physics-based approaches to machine learning. Beyond Stanford, Parag is co-founder of Nautilus Biotechnology, a company developing a next generation, single-molecule, protein analysis platform.
