Assistant Professor, Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics



Indika Rajapakse, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics, Medical School, with a secondary appointment in Mathematics, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Prof. Rajapakse’s research¬†is focused on the dynamics of genome organization in human cells, with emphasis on gaining a deeper understanding of how the cell cycle guides cell fate determination. Prof. Rajapakse and his team are developing genomic and imaging technologies for determining the natural dynamics of the cell cycle and building a data guided mathematical foundation. Their long term goal is to develop strategies for direct reprogramming of normal and abnormal cells
