Dr. Yana Bromberg’s research focuses on deciphering the DNA “blueprints” of life’s molecular machinery. She develops novel bioinformatics techniques to find out where this machinery comes from and why/how it runs. The answers to these basic questions are important for improving our health/quality of life, preserving our environment, and, well… did we really start as green slime?!

Dr. Bromberg received her degrees from SUNY Stony Brook and Columbia University. Her work has been recognized by private and federal agencies, including NASA and NIH. She received an NSF CAREER award and is also a Fellow of the Munich Institute for Advanced Study. Her findings consistently indicate that our world functions via dependencies and interactions at all scales.
