Harald is a group leader at the Computational Biology Unit at the Department of Informatics and at the Proteomics Unit at the Department of Biomedicine, both at the University of Bergen.
The main focus of his group is the development of user-friendly open-source bioinformatics tools that enable and empower researchers to analyze and share their own data. This has resulted in numerous publications and a long list of freely available software.
In 2015 he received the Meltzer Award for Excellent Young Researchers at the University of Bergen, and in 2016 obtained funding from the Research Council of Norway as a Young Research Talent. Later that same year he was also awarded the prestigious recruitment fellowship from the Bergen Research Foundation.
Yehia got his M.Sc. from the University of Bergen, and is currently focusing on web-based interactive visual analysis of omics data. He is main developer behind the CSF Proteome Resource – an online repository of mass spectrometry based proteomics experiments on human cerebrospinal fluid.
Carlos got his M.Sc. from the University of Carlos III in Madrid, Spain, and is currently working on the analysis of proteomics data in a web-based context, including tools such as SearchGUI, PeptideShaker, NeLS and Galaxy.
Astrid did her PhD at the University of Bergen, with a focus on mass spectrometry based proteomics for multiple sclerosis biomarker research using cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). She is currently working on the CSF Proteome Resource – an online repository of mass spectrometry based proteomics experiments on human cerebrospinal fluid, in addition to performing related wet lab experiments.
Ragnhild Reehorst Lereim
Ragnhild did her M.Sc. at the University of Bergen as part of the Proteomics Unit at the Department of Biomedicine. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Barsnes Group within the field of proteomics and cell-biology. The title of her PhD project is “Using meta-analyses of proteomics data to identify novel disease networks in multiple sclerosis”.
Bram did his M.Sc. at Hasselt University in Belgium, focusing on the statistical aspects of bioinformatics. He is currently a PhD Candidate in the Barsnes Group working on the statistical analysis of proteomics data, in particular related to protein interaction networks and biomarker discovery.
