We are pleased to announce the investiture of Dr. Alexey Nesvizhskii as the inaugural Godfrey Dorr Stobbe Professor of Bioinformatics. The investiture ceremony took place on Wednesday, April 19, 2023.
“Alexey is a true inspiration for our Bioinformatics graduate students, several of whom have trained under him and have launched marvelous careers in industry and academia. His leadership of our NCI Proteogenomic T32 Predoctoral training program is nationally respected, and his overall bioinformatics innovation leadership is a source of pride for all,” said Brian Athey, Ph.D., the Michael Savageau Collegiate Professor & Chair, Department of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics.
“We are very proud that Alexey has chosen to build his career here at the University of Michigan," said Gil Omenn, M.D., Ph,D., the Harold T. Shapiro Distinguished University Professor and Director, Center for Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics. "He is the world leader in innovative computational proteomics. And he is a major figure in the NCI Clinical Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium on proteogenomic analyses of the great heterogeneity of cancers in patients. Finally, he is an inspiration for U-M and global trainees in proteomics.”
The Godfrey Dorr Stobbe Research Professorship in Bioinformatics was established through dollars split from the Stobbe Professorship fund. It is intended to support the teaching and research of a tenured faculty member of the Department of Pathology.
