Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.
Anne has been very productive since joining DCSB in the tenure stream in 2017. In a few years, she assembled a team of computational and experimental scientists and has published many high-impact articles. The promise of her innovative research program has been recognized by the Searle Scholar award, the LHAS Trailblazer award, the NIH Director’s New Innovator award and a Sloan Research Fellowship.
In addition to excelling in research, Anne has taken on leadership roles at the University of Pittsburgh and beyond. She co-founded the Pittsburgh Center for Evolutionary Biology and Medicine (CEBaM) and became co-organizer of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories international meeting on Network Biology. Her work has inspired the creation of a new start-up by Flagship Pioneering (the creators of Moderna), as well as a new annotation effort by Ensembl to delineate the “non-canonical” translated genetic elements of the human genome. A leader in education as well, she is the Associate Director of our Integrative Systems Biology PhD program.
Congratulations to Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis!
