Current Students

HUNTER EBY (MD-PhD)

Thesis adviser: Rammohan Shukla/Robert Smith
Education: BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of Toledo, MSBS in Bioinformatics from the University of Toledo. 
Research Interests: My main focus has been looking at the transcriptional profile of patients with schizophrenia and performing large scale data analysis. I am also developing software in which I hope to help researchers find new and unique gene sets with the help of Gene Set Enrichment analysis and Text mining for hypothesis driving experimentation.
