Welcome to the Mer Lab

We are a computational biology and machine learning research group at the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa. Our group is also affiliated with the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology.

We use cutting edge artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning methods to solve the challenges in human health and disease. Towards this goal, we develop and apply computational tools for omics data analysis.

Our current major focus areas are:

  • Personalized medicine in cancer
  • Single-cell sequencing data analysis
  • Drug repurposing
