Arun Patil joined the Lieber Institute in 2023 as a postdoctoral fellow. As a computational biologist (bioinformatics) his research involves data analysis from various omics platforms including next-generation sequencing-based small RNA sequencing, transcriptomics and single nuclei data analysis. His work extends to mass-spectrometry-based proteomics and integrating transcriptomics and proteomics to find novel translational events in several neurological disorders.

Prior to joining LIBD, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Marc Halushka’s lab, Department of Pathology, Division of Cardiovascular Pathology, the Johns Hopkins University, where he developed software tools to analyze microRNA sequences (miRge3.0) and carried out subsequent profiling of miRNAs using miRge3.0 in 196 primary cells from ~2000 samples. His Ph.D. thesis work at the Institute of Bioinformatics and KIIT University, India, was on computational approaches to decipher novel translational events and post-translational modifications. Working with professor Akhilesh Pandey at the Institute of Bioinformatics, India, and Pandey´s laboratory at Johns Hopkins, he carried out computational analysis and interpretation of proteomics and next-generation sequencing data as part of his Ph.D. thesis. He also worked as a lecturer at the Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine at the Yenepoya Research Centre, Yenepoya University, Mangalore, India, with Dr. T. S. Keshava Prasad.
