Stephane Wenric, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Stephane Wenric, Ph.D. is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Genomic Health. He is a member of the Charles Bronfman Institute of Personalized Medicine at the Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

He is a computational genomicist working at the crossing of computer science and genetics/genomics, applying machine learning, algorithmics, and software engineering methods to data arising from population genomics and cancer genomics related questions. His past and present research projects include using miRNAs as cancer biomarkers, studying non-coding RNA in breast cancer samples, analyzing pharmacogenetics phenotypes in ancestrally diverse populations, using graph theory analysis on IBD networks and developing novel, machine learning based, gene prioritization methods.

Dr. Wenric earned his Master’s degree in biomedical engineering and his Ph.D. in cancer genetics from the University of Liege.
