Gamze Gürsoy PhD

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics
Gamze Gürsoy is an incoming Assistant Professor at the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University and a Core Member at the New York Genome Center, starting January, 2022. She will also be affiliated with the Department of Computer Science. Her research group will develop tools to analyze and understand large-scale omics data in relation to diseases and phenotypes with a particular interest in developing privacy-preserving software, file formats, and pipelines that enable broad sharing and analysis of sensitive genotypic and phenotypic data in public servers. Dr. Gürsoy is also interested in developing tools to map the regulatory wiring of the chromatin to interrogate the regulatory variation affecting the molecular phenotypes associated with diseases. Much of her lab's work focuses on creating reproducible, efficient, easy-to-use, and cloud-ready tools for the broad biomedical community. The computational work in the lab will be supported by experimental approaches, creating opportunities for trainees in cross-disciplinary studies. More information can be found here.
