Elisabetta De Maria
Université Côte d'Azur, CNRS, I3S

Brief Bio
Elisabetta De Maria did her undergraduate and graduate studies at University of Udine, Italy, getting her PhD in 2009 studying computational methods for protein structure prediction, string comparison, and biological pathway analysis. From 2009 to 2011 she was Postdoctoral Fellow at INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt (France). The first year of her post-doctoral studies was funded by ERCIM (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics), an organization that annually selects talented researchers for post-doctoral fellowships encouraging mobility. The second year was funded by the international project ERASysBio+ C5Sys on the cell cycle and circadian clock in tumour processes. Since September 2011 she is associate professor at Université Côte d’Azur, France. From September 2011 to June 2013 she was the coordinator of the International Research Master Program “Computational Biology and Biomedicine” (CBB) of University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France. Her expertise in bioinformatics, and more specifically in computational systems biology, led her to be part of the program committee of several international conferences, and to be the program chair of the conferences BIOINFORMATICS 2019 (10th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms), CSBio 2019 (10th International Conference on Computational Systems-Biology and Bioinformatics), and BIOINFORMATICS 2020 (11th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms). Her researches aim at substantiating the claim that formal methods of computer science can provide effective solutions to solve biological and medical problems. For instance, she used formal methods to study the functioning of some processes which are central in cancer treatments (cell cycle, circadian clock, DNA-damage repair mechanism) in order to optimize time and dose injections of an anti-cancer drug. More recently, she exploited formal methods to identify some canonical neuronal networks of our brain and to study their biological dynamical properties. ... More >>
