Gordon Broderick – Rochester General HospitalDirector, Center for Clinical Systems Biology Group
An engineer by training, Dr. Broderick holds a doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of Montreal as well as a Master’s in chemical engineering and an undergraduate in mechanical engineering both from McGill University. He received post-doctoral training in cancer genomics at McGill’s School of Computer Science, and computational biochemistry at the University of Alberta, where he led a high-performance computing effort in modeling the molecular dynamics of intracellular life.
Building on this study of complex emergent behavior in biology, Dr. Broderick’s current research is focused on understanding immune dysfunction and autoimmunity from an integrated systems perspective. Members of his group are applying information and dynamic systems theory to tap into the neuro-endocrine immune communication highway in order to decipher and redirect pathogenic immune conversations with well-chosen and well-timed pharmaceutical messages. This work is funded under awards from the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Dr. Broderick also serves as an associate editor to the journal BMC Systems Biology, and editorial board member for the new journal Systems Biomedicine (Taylor & Francis).
