Diversity in Mexico

Sourav Bandyopadhyay, PhD

Associate Professor

I seek to understand, at the systems level, how biological networks within cancer cells are fundamentally different from those in normal cells. Using a variety of experimental techniques, I design new platforms for the rational application of personalized medicine and the design of combination...

Esteban G. Burchard, MD, MPH

Professor

I am a physician-scientist with training in pulmonary medicine, genetics, and epidemiology. My research and academic interests center on identifying disease risk factors specific to racial groups, most especially those related to asthma and drug response. I am engaged in a new, international field...

Kathryn Phillips, PhD

Professor

My work focuses on the translation of new technologies into improved patient outcomes, particularly the translation of personalized/precision medicine—targeting health care interventions to patients based on their genetics—into clinical care and health policy.

Rada Savic, PhD

Professor

I investigate the causes of variations in clinical outcomes, using computational methods. My goal is to determine the optimal dosage, timing, and duration of therapeutic regimens. Ultimately, I want to develop precise, personalized treatments.
