The department's research in this area aims to develop cutting-edge computational methods that can be directly applied to accelerate biomedical research. We work closely with biologists, medical doctors and technologists at CUHK and other local and foreign institutes. Our long-term commitment is to make key contributions to fundamental biomedical discoveries and human health improvements. Our recent research in this area focuses on the following specific topics:

  • Modeling of molecular structures and interactions for drug discovery
  • Reconstruction and analysis of gene regulatory networks
  • Identification and annotation of causal genetic variants of human diseases
  • Integration of heterogeneous data from omic studies and new experimental technologies
