Igor B. Kuznetsov is an Associate Professor at the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Cancer Research Center, and Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science.
He received his Ph.D. degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and M.S. degree from the Novosibirsk State University. After receiving his Ph.D., he worked as a bioinformatics research associate at the University of Kansas from 2003 to 2004, and joined the University at Albany faculty in 2004.
Dr. Kuznetsov’s research area is bioinformatics, which is a highly interdisciplinary field that exists at the interface between biological and computational sciences. Bioinformatics involves the development and application of computational techniques to organize and analyze genomic data, on a large scale.
On the computational side, he is interested in the integration and analysis of heterogeneous high-dimensional datasets, such as the datasets generated by the next-generation sequencing and microarray technologies. On the biological side, his main areas of interest are cancer genomics, in particular prognostic biomarkers, and protein functional/structural studies.
