Drs. Mac Gabhann and Sarma host Reddit “Ask Us Anything”



On Thursday, April 7, 2016, Drs. Feilim Mac Gabhann and Sridevi Sarma, ICM core faculty members and recipients of the JHU Catalyst Award, hosted a two-hour Reddit “Ask Us Anything” session on Computational Medicine.

Dr. Feilim Mac Gabhann, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, has research centered around Systems Pharmacology and Personalized Medicine. His lab builds computational models that link micro-scale events like molecular interactions and cellular behavior to human-scale physiology. They then use those models incorporate patient data into these models, to evaluate the differences that cause a drug to work in some people but not others.

Dr. Sridevi Sarma, also an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, focuses on electrical patterns in the normal and diseased brain. Her lab works to build computational and statistical models of electrical activity in neural circuits affected by Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, chronic pain, and insomnia. The models are used to predict mechanisms of action of electrical stimulation therapy and can be used to design more efficient and more effective therapies that are also personalized to patients.
