Speaker Profile

Italian Laurea in Physics, Professor, Columbia U./CZ Biohub

Biography
Dr. Califano is a pioneer in the field of systems biology and founding chair of the Department of Systems Biology at Columbia University. He has taken innovative approaches to identify drivers of cancer progression and drug resistance at the singlecell level. Rather than focusing on gene mutations, Dr. Califano analyses the complex, tumorspecific cellular networks that determine cancer cell behavior to pinpoint master regulator proteins that are mechanistically responsible for tumorigenesis and tumor cell homeostasis. Dr. Califano and his lab have shown that master regulators represent critical drivers and tumor dependencies, thus establishing them as a bona fide new class of therapeutic targets. Dr. Califano is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the International Society for Computational Biology, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine and a twice recipient of the NCI outstanding investigation award.
