Systems biology candidate to present seminar Dec. 6

Stephen Ramsey, a faculty candidate for the systems biology position in the biology department, will present a seminar titled "An integrative systems approach to understanding cell type-specific gene regulatory networks: application to macrophages" noon Thursday, Dec. 6, in 141 Starcher Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Ramsey received his doctoral degree in physics from the University of Maryland. He is a senior scientist at the Seattle Biomedical Research Institute and a visiting scientist at the Institute for Systems Biology. Following his graduate work in mathematical physics, Ramsey carried out postdoctoral research in computational genomics in Maynard Olson's lab at the University of Washington and in computational biology in the labs of Hamid Bolouri and Ilya Shmulevich at the Institute for Systems Biology. In 2011, he moved to Alan Aderem's lab at Seattle BioMed, where he has been using integrative systems approaches to map gene regulatory networks controlling macrophage responses to microbial molecular patterns and to atherogenic lipoproteins.
