Joseph D. Romano, PhD

Biomedical data scientist and translational bioinformatician


I'm currently a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, where I work in the research group of Jason Moore. Recently, I earned my PhD from Columbia University, where I was a member of the Tatonetti Lab. I specialize in translational bioinformatics, computational toxinology, and environmental toxicology.

For more information about my research, publications, or CV/résumé, please see the links at the top of the page.

  • Translational Bioinformatics is the field of study that uses computational techniques to link molecular entities (proteins, genes, drugs) to clinical entities (humans, body systems, diagnoses).

    Computational toxinology (not 'toxicology') is the use of computers to discover new characteristics from venoms and the molecules that comprise venoms, especially for the purpose of discovering new drugs.
