Resumé

Paweł Łabaj has studied Computer Science in Medicine at Silesian University of Technology (Gliwice, Poland). For his MSc thesis he was working on the project in The Institute of Medical Technology and Equipment (Zabrze, Poland) where he has developed system of automatic analysis and pattern recognition using neural networks applied in Fetal Heart Rate monitoring devices. He then has joined the Vienna Science Chair of Bioinformatics at Boku University Vienna, where he obtained PhD in Bioinformatics on Measurement and data analysis in the face of noise and complex backgrounds – Advances from improved bioinformatics algorithms. He was active member of FDA MAQC-III/SEQC consortium where he studied performance of the platforms and pipelines for high throughput expression profiling. This experience has led to winning the APART Fellowship of Austrian Academy of Sciences as well as recent competition for bioinformatics group leader at Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology (Krakow, Poland). Dr Łabaj’s research focuses on consequences of gene vs. alternative transcript expression profiling, as well as on the approaches for assessing performance / benchmarking of the platforms and analysis pipelines.
