About Michael Hallett

Michael Hallett received his PhD in complexity theory at the University of Victoria, and held a postdoctoral position in bioinformatics at the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology in Zurich, Switzerland, where he was primarily interested in the development of computational biology methods to understand genome evolution. In 2000, he joined McGill University and is now a full member of the Goodman Cancer Centre at McGill University. He is an associate member of the department of Biochemistry, an associate professor within the School of Computer Science, and director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Systems Biology Training Program at McGill University. His group is primarily interested in the use of bioinformatics and systems biology to understand breast cancer progression, with special emphasis placed upon the development of predictive systems that assist in clinical decision making. Through several collaborations with molecular oncologists at McGill and elsewhere, he has developed expertise in the comparison of high-throughput profiles of mouse models with the human forms of this disease. His group is also interested in the use of systems biology to better understand orphan diseases especially with respect to the use of chemical genomics, and chemical synergy.
