Dr. Andrew McArthur is McMaster's inaugural Cisco Research Chair in Bioinformatics and an Associate Professor in the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research and Department of Biochemistry & Biomedical Sciences in the Faculty of Health Sciences. He has had a 20+ year research career in the United States and Canada, including postdoctoral experience at the National Museum of Natural History and NIH-funded faculty positions at the Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole, MA) and Brown University, plus 10 years experience in the private sector. He is also the Director of McMaster’s Biomedical Discovery & Commercialization program. The McArthur laboratory’s research program spans complex informatics approaches to the functional genomics of microbial drug resistance, development of biological databases, next generation sequencing for genome assembly and molecular epidemiology, automated literature curation approaches, controlled vocabularies for biological knowledge integration, big data in the biomedical sciences, and functional genomics approaches in environmental toxicology. His research often involves collaboration with Public Health agencies and license agreements with industrial partners.
