The Bioinformatics and Human Electrophysiology Lab (BiHELab) focus on recent advances in geriatrics and neurodegeneration, ranging from basic science to clinical and pharmaceutical developments.
BiHELab’s goal is to help bridge the translational gap from data to models and from models to drug discovery and personalized therapy by fostering collaborations and developing original quantitative approaches to biological and clinical problems.
BiHELab interests lie within educational, research and development activities in the areas of:
- Neurogenerative diseases and their relations with mitochondrial abnormalities and skin cancers
- Mathematical modeling and data analysis in proteomics, genomics and chemistry
- Systems biology approaches such as pathway, network and interaction analyses
- Large scale statistical and machine learning studies
- Protein structure, function and stability prediction, sequence and domain analyses
- Design and implementation of relational databases and software programs
- Online Health Record System for Diabetics
- Medical Information System for Epilepsy patients
- Pattern recognition techniques on mitochondrial imaging from neural and Schwann cells
- Knowledge Management System for the discrete mathematical representations of RNA secondary structures
- Artificial Neural Network for waveforms recognition on the anesthesiology patient’s monitor
- Wireless MEMS devices for skin and dermis bio-measurements
- Applying Hierarchical Linear Models on studying RPG and Social Networks among students
- Producing Webinars for Bioinformatics e-Classes
The electrophysiological laboratory houses instruments for intra and extracellular recordings in vivo and in vitro, and equipment for behavioral studies and equipment for both tethered and telemetric field potential recording.
