Technical Director of the Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource (BISR)
Research Associate Professor


Dr. Maciej Pietrzak is Technical Director of the Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource (BISR) and a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University. Dr. Pietrzak has an extensive background in molecular and cellular biology combined with expertise in bioinformatics and computational biology.

His work in computational biology and bioinformatics fields is focused on applying computational methods and novel mathematical approaches to address systems biology and functional genomics questions. Previously, he studied cellular processes such as cell proliferation and programmed cell death, on a molecular level, identifying mechanisms and signaling pathways shaping cellular responses to environmental stimuli.

Dr. Pietrzak received his Ph.D. in medical biology from the Mossakowski Medical Research Center, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland and his M.Sc. in molecular biology form Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland. He completed postdoctoral training in neuroscience at the University of Louisville Spinal Cord Injury Research Center and bioinformatics/computational biology in the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) and the Center for Pharmacogenomics at The Ohio State University.
