Biographical Info

Dr. Androulakis received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and he subsequently obtained his M.S and Ph.D. from Purdue University, USA. He spent two years at Princeton University as a research associate before joining ExxonMobil’s Corporate Strategic Research Laboratories, where he eventually became the Informatics and Knowledge Capitalization technical project leader before joining the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical & Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University. His work has been funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, and the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Androulakis actively pursues research activities in the area of Systems Biology, loosely defined as an integrative modeling and experimental framework that approaches biological entities as “systems” in the physical and engineering sense. Of particular interest are issues related to “functional physiomics” in an attempt to establish functional links between cellular events, such as signaling, transcription and translation, and an expanding envelope of interactions which include the bidirectional links between cells, tissues, organs, environmental signals and physiological responses. The ultimate goal is to develop in silico methodologies that will enable translational research by elucidating putative mechanisms by which macroscopic responses, at the physiome level, can be functionally modulated through mechanistic interventions. Of particular importance are the opportunities of such an integrative approach applied to the inflammatory responses due to the critical role inflammation plays in a number of physiologically and clinically relevant situations. His work integrates a compendium of experimental systems, from cell cultures, to animal models, to human studies in order to address different questions at their appropriate level of detail.
