Team

Eila Arich-Landkof, founder - Entrepreneur at the Computer Science & Life Science Industries. Served in a variety of positions at the high tech industry and at the life science industry. Worked for leading companies such as: Cisco, Microsoft, Elbit systems, The Whitehead institute of biomedical research, Mass General Hospital and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. BA in math & computer science, MA in quality assurance and reliability.

Eila navigated her career from the hightech industry to the life science industry and the research field. She worked as a developer, team leader, product manager, startup founder, wet lab technician, cancer genomic researcher & product manager. Eila envisioned tumor portal role in the cancer healthcare world and has been able to transfer her vision into reality. Her effort and vision was acknowledged at the 2016 Broad annual scientific contest where tumor portal won the first place in its category.

Currently Eila leads the Deep-Learning-in-Production meetup (~1900 members) and the Founder and CEO of Oriel Research

Dr. Noam Shoresh, PhD, advisor

Noam Shoresh is an associate director of computational biology at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT in the Epigenomics program, and also oversees computational projects in the program of infectious diseases at the Broad Institute. Dr. Shoresh was trained as a theoretical physicist in the field of elementary particles. Following that, he was training as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard in the field of computational biologist. At 2008, Dr. Shoresh joined the Broad Institute.

Dr. Shoresh's epigenomics computational team has made central contributions to ENCODE project aimed at the characterization of the human epigenome in health and disease. Dr. Shoresh's expertise also includes the evolution and adaptation of microorganisms, with a focus on the emergence of resistance and tolerance to antibiotic treatments.
