Qin Ma, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University and a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program at the OSUCCC – James, where he studies how diverse cells impact cancer development.One of Dr. Ma’s current research projects aims to examine the construction of cell type-specific gene co-regulation signatures based on single cell transcriptomics data in order to develop a computational model that tracks how genes are expressed in specific cell types and help scientists unravel how diseases progress and evade treatment. Dr. Ma has co-authored many articles in well-respected journals, including Nucleic Acids Research, Bioinformatics, PLoS Computational Biology, Oncotarget and International Journal of Cancer. He has also shared his work at events across the world, including the Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference and the Plant and Animal Genome Conference.
