Trey Ideker, PhD
Professor, Medicine, UCSD
Trey is a professor of Medicine at UC San Diego. He serves as Director of the National Resource for Network Biology and Director of the San Diego Center for Systems Biology, as well as being Adjunct Professor of Computer Science and Bioengineering and Member of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. Trey is a pioneer in using genome-scale measurements to construct network models of cellular processes and disease. His goal is to develop a new type of medicine based on knowledge of the complete physical and functional wiring of the cell. His laboratory is developing new ways of mapping these wiring diagrams directly from genome-scale measurements (genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic) and for using these maps to translate the increasingly complex data gathered from patients to predict disease outcomes and develop better treatments.
