ICM Announces Appointment of 2 New Faculty Members


The Institute for Computational Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of two new faculty members, Dr. Feilim Mac Gabhann and Dr. Sridevi Sarma.

Feilim Mac Gabhann received a BE (Chemical Engineering) from University College Dublin in 1997 and his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2006. He went on to work as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Cardiovascular Research Center at the University of Virginia. Feilim’s new position is Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering & Institute for Computational Medicine. His research takes a combined experimental-computational approach to generating novel therapeutic strategies to major human diseases, including cancer, peripheral artery disease, and HIV. In particular, he develops metrics (proteomic, genomic or morphological) to differentiate patient subgroups that respond differently to therapies. By identifying the most suitable therapy for groups of patients, personalized medicine promises to decrease R&D costs and increase positive outcomes. Dr. Mac Gabhann is a recipient of a K99/R00 NIH Pathway to Independence Award, as well as an Award for Outstanding Research by a Graduate Student from the Biomedical Engineering Society and the Zweifach Student Award from the Microcirculatory Society.

Sridevi V. Sarma received a BS (1994) from Cornell University and an MS (1997) and PhD (2006) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Sri is now an Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical
Engineering & Institute for Computational Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. Her research interests include control of constrained and defective systems (applications in neuroscience) and large-scale optimization. Sri is president and cofounder of Infolenz Corporation, a Marketing Analytics company. She is a recipient of the GE faculty for the future scholarship, a National Science Foundation graduate research fellow, a L’Oreal for Women in Science National fellow, and a recipient of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Careers at the Scientific Interface Award.
