Background Information

Hamid Bolouri received his PhD from Brunel University (London, UK) in 1990. From 1987 to 2002, he was a faculty member at the University of Hertfordshire (UK), becoming Professor of Neural Systems in 1998. In 2002, he joined the Institute for Systems Biology (Seattle) as a Professor of Computational Biology. He was visiting faculty in the Divisions of Biology and Control & Dynamical Systems at Caltech for periods spanning 1996-2010. In 2010, Bolouri joined the Division of Human Biology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle) as a Research Full Member. Before joining BRI, he was Director of Informatics & Computational Biology at the Allen Institute for Immunology. 

Area of Research

We are interested in discovering and decoding the molecular interaction networks that regulate immune cell function and behavior in both healthy and disease settings. To this end, we develop and use machine learning, bioinformatics, and other statistical/mathematical methods to integrate diverse and usually large-scale data types (e.g. single-cell omics, FACS, CyTOF, and patient data).
