Artem completed his PhD in Computer Science and Bioinformatics at Colorado State University under the supervision of Asa Ben-Hur, with whom he worked on developing novel state-of-the-art methods for accurate protein function prediction. Artem's postdoctoral work at the University of California Santa Cruz focused on building robust, interpretable in silico models of human cancers and correlating the output of these models with biological and clinical outcomes. This work was a major part of his involvement in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the West Coast Dream Team (WCDT) consortia.
As Director of Informatics and Modeling at the Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology (LSP), Artem leads a group of computational biologists and software engineers who model pre-clinical, translational and clinical data using a wide range of machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches. He plays a key role in training and mentoring a diverse group of students and postdocs and in managing the lab’s collaborations with academic and industrial groups.
