Senior Lecturer in Intestinal Epithelial Biology, Lead of the NIHR Imperial BRC Organoid Facility

 at Imperial College London

As a PhD student, Tamas developed a signalling network database, SignaLink, which filled a vital niche in the landscape of bioinformatics tools, and by now it has become one of the most used signalling network resources for human and model organism studies. It also forms the core of OmniPath, a more general human signaling network resource Tamas co-developed with the group of Julio Saez-Rodriguez. In 2014, Tamas received a special 5-year BBSRC fellowship to work in the computational biology and sequencing focused Earlham Institute and in the gut microbiome centred Quadram Institute at the Norwich Research Park. This fellowship allowed him to establish a multi-disciplinary group that combines computational and experimental approaches, including gut organoids. In 2019, he was appointed as a Tenure-track group leader at the Earlham and the Quadram Institutes, and between 2017 and 2021 he led the Systems Genomics workpackage of the Earlham Institute’s strategic programme. His group has carried out multiple projects to predict, analyse and validate host-microbe interactions in the gut, especially in relation to the regulation of autophagy by microbes and upon disease conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and cancer. He had multiple innovation and industrial partnership projects to develop new computational tools and platforms to analyse multi-omics data. End of 2021, Tamas moved to Imperial College as a Senior Lecturer, and currently leads both a research group that focuses on improving our understanding on the pathomechanisms of IBD and the NIHR Imperial BRC Organoid Facility to establish patient-specific multi-omics studies for various complex diseases.
