Sara is an experienced bioinformatician with more than 10 years of experience and 7 years of consulting experience. Her graduate and professional research was focused on analytics and tool development for cancer and immunology related genomics.
Dr. Selitsky received her PhD in Bioinformatics from the University of North Carolina in 2015 and joined the Bioinformatics Core in the cancer center at UNC where she became an assistant professor. Her work includes several bioinformatics methods such as FastPG, a fast single cell clustering method and VirDect, a workflow which quantifies viral expression from RNA-seq.
Prior to his work at QuantBio, Dr. Perez worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, performing translational oncology research, investigating the cross-talk shared between pancreatic cancer subtypes and cancer associated fibroblasts of the stroma utilizing patient-derived samples. Before UNC, he worked at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, characterizing gene and protein regulatory networks related to lipid metabolism under dietary perturbations. He utilized -omics data and mathematical modeling to uncover a novel regulatory axis between transporter enzymes and PPARα.
