Dr Davis McCarthy has joined MIG
Dr Davis McCarthy has joined MIG (@MelbIntGen) as a new group leader and joint appointee with St Vincent’s Institute (SVI) as Head of the new Bioinformatics and Cellular Genomics Laboratory.
Davis is an NHMRC Early Career Fellow who has spent the last 7 years working in the U.K., initially at the University of Oxford and then at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI). In his time overseas, Davis worked at the interface of cutting-edge statistics, computing and cell biology and brings back to Australia unique expertise in complex data analysis. He has a particular interest in single-cell genomics and in devising analysis frameworks for studies into the effects of changes in DNA on gene expression in individual cells.
MIG Director, Professor David Balding, said, “This new position will help establish MIG as a world leader in mathematical and computational methods for genomics, and form an important bridge between medical researchers interested in the origin and progression of disease, and cutting-edge research in computational genomics. We hope it will lead to further collaboration between the organisations.”
