Professor Pedro Mendes Computational Systems Biology
Licenciado (BSc) in Biochemistry, by the University of Lisbon (1983-1988)
PhD by the University of Wales Aberystwyth (1990-1994), thesis titled Computer simulation of the dynamics of biochemical pathways), Supervisor: Douglas B. Kell
My research is in the area of computational systems biology, which aims to better understand biological systems through the use of computer models. I am a member of the Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology, and of the Machine Learning and Optimization research group. My active areas of research are:
Research in the areas listed above requires a broad interdisciplinary approach and I work with people from most areas of science, either in my own research group or as collaborators.
I have supervised more than 15 PhD students. (See the full list here)
I am mentor projects under an NSF Research Education for Undergraduates project on Modeling and Simulation in Systems Biology that takes place every Summer. Interested students should apply through this page.
