    Suhas Srinivasan, Ph.D.

    Principal Bioinformatics Scientist, Dermatology

    BioI develop computational methods to discover insights at various resolutions of the biological hierarchy i.e., molecules, cells, tissues, organs, organism and population-scale.
    In my current role, I lead the bioinformatics efforts for two groups that are pioneers in epigenomics research.
    We study tissue development, cancer evolution, and autoimmunity using multiomics, with a focus on the non-coding genome.

    I have over four years of professional experience in industry and academia, and over eight years of academic research experience.
    I received my Ph.D. in Data Science specializing in machine learning development for diverse biomedical problems.
    My research interests include artificial intelligence to identify novel patterns in multiomics data, psychometrics and neuroimaging data; structural bioinformatics and computational epidemiology. Additionally, I have conducted research in anomaly detection, and community detection in biological networks.
    I am the co-inventor of a patented anomaly detection method for real-time streaming data.

    Ankit Srivastava

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Dermatology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on deciphering novel molecular crosstalk between epithelial and immune cells in human epithelial cancers and skin aging. My current projects highlight the targetable epithelial-immune axis in aggressive metastatic tumors with perineural invasion- cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSC). To accomplish this, I imply single-cell transcriptomics and spatial RNA detection methods- multiplex and hiplex RNAscope along with our newly developed novel tumor nerve invasion model. Additionally, I study the regulome of human skin aging (chronological and photo-aging) by investigating the multiome data to recognize molecular underpinnings of aging.

    John B. Sunwoo, MD

    Edward C. and Amy H. Sewall Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Dermatology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory is focused on two primary areas of research: (1) the immune response to head and neck cancer and to a tumorigenic population of cells within these malignancies called cancer stem cells; (2) the developmental programs of a special lymphocyte population involved in innate immunity called natural killer (NK) cells; and (3) intra-tumor and inter-tumor heterogeneity.

  • Susan M. Swetter, MD

    Susan M. Swetter, MD

    Professor of Dermatology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests1) Early detection of melanoma through enhanced screening, novel imaging technologies, and professional/public education to improve melanoma awareness. 2) Therapeutic prevention of melanoma and other skin cancers in high-risk groups. 4) Epidemiologic and sociodemographic melanoma risk factors. 4) Dermatologist liaison to ECOG-ACRIN Melanoma Committee and Co-founder/Co-Director of the national Melanoma Prevention Working Group, an interdisciplinary collaboration dedicated to melanoma control.
