Dr. Evangelia Petsalaki
Group Leader, European Bioinformatics Institute
I am originally from Athens Greece, where I also completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Athens, with a thesis on using neural networks for the prediction of protein subcellular location. I then moved to the EMBL in Heidelberg, where under the supervision of Rob Russell I did a PhD (2009) on structural bioinformatics predicting peptide binding on protein structures. My postdoc was done under the supervision of Tony Pawson and Fritz Roth where I worked on a diverse array of projects from Rho signalling, proteomics, phosphoproteomics to yeast genetics. Since 2017 I am a group leader at the EMBL-EBI and my group focuses on the study of the principles underpinning context specific cell signalling responses in humans, mainly using network-based approaches.
