James T Yurkovich

I defended my Ph.D. in March 2018 and have accepted a Faculty Fellowship at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, WA.

Research Interests

I use a variety of computational and systems biology approaches to study the physiology of human red blood cells. Our goal is to provide the framework for identifying, computing, and understanding systems-level properties by integrating disparate multi-omic data types into multi-scale models.

In my dissertation, I examined the metabolic physiology of red cells under storage conditions for use in transfusion medicine. We combined statistical and mechanistic modeling approaches to characterize the state of the metabolic network. Link to my dissertation.
