Pablo Rodriguez Mier

Research scientist at the Institute for Computational Biology (Saez-Rodriguez group). Heidelberg University.


I am a research scientist at Saez-Rodriguez group (Institute for Computational Biomedicine, Heidelberg University) where I am currently working on biological network inference. I am interested in deciphering how complex biological systems behave under different conditions through mechanistic and computational models that integrate both prior biological knowledge and experimental data.

Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Computational Systems Biology at INRAE Toxalim (Toulouse, France), where I was working on computational models to understand and predict the metabolic deregulation of cancer cells due to mutations in the TP53 gene.


Mar 11, 2024 I will be attending the EMBO-EMBL “AI and Biology” Symposium (Heidelberg)
Jan 18, 2024 We won the Kaggle competition "Open Problems - Single-Cell Perturbations"!
