About Dr. Reinhard Laubenbacher

Reinhard C. Laubenbacher, Ph.D.Dr. Laubenbacher joined UConn Health in May 2013 as professor in the Department of Cell Biology and director of the Center for Quantitative Medicine. He is a professor of Computational Biology at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. Prior to these appointments, he served as a professor at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and the Department of Mathematics at Virginia Tech since 2001. He was an adjunct professor in the Department of Cancer Biology at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem (NC) and affiliate faculty in the Virginia Tech Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences. He has served as visiting faculty at Los Alamos National Laboratories, the Mathematical Science Research Institute at Berkeley and Cornell University. Current interests in Dr. Laubenbacher’s research group include the development of mathematical algorithms and their application to problems in systems biology, in particular the modeling and simulation of molecular networks. An application area of particular interest is cancer systems biology, especially the role of iron metabolism in breast cancer.
