Andrea Califano, Chair, Systems Biology Department, Columbia University U.S.A.

Andrea Califano is the Clyde and Helen Wu Professor of Chemical Systems Biology at Columbia University Medical Center, the Founding Chair of the Department of Systems Biology, Director of the JP Sulzberger ColumbiaGenome Center, and Associate Director of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. He is originally trained as a physicist and has applied physics‐based approaches, including extensive use of information theory principles, to the reverse engineering and interrogation of gene regulatory networks to systematically and efficiently identify key tumor
checkpoint modules, whose aberrant activity is necessary for tumor viability. This has resulted in several clinical trials, including a very innovative N of 1 study for precision cancer medicine. Dr. Califano has received several awards and recognitions, including the NCI Outstanding Investigator Award, fellow of the AAAS, and of the NY Academy of Medicine and Academy of Science. He is also the Co‐founder of DarwinHealth Inc
