Gareth Price joins QFAB as Head of Computational Biology

A former Mater Health Services Chief Scientist has joined QFAB Bioinformatics as its new Head of Computational Biology.

Dr Gareth Price (pictured) haGareth Prices 15 years’ experience as a genomics scientist, a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Melbourne, and was a Chief Scientist at the Mater for almost a decade until December 2016.

In his new QFAB role, Gareth will work closely with researchers providing expertise in the design and analysis of genomics projects, including solving complex computational and statistical problems as they relate to interpreting biological data.

Gareth is looking forward to helping researchers get the most out of their high-throughput research data, improving the time between data generation and summarisation, ready for the important phase of data interpretation and result discovery.

“My view is that life science and clinical research are at their best when coupled with the most accurate, highest throughput and innovative technology and analysis,” he said.

Gareth has more than 10 years’ experience in running labs utilising microarray and NGS technologies to address a variety of human and human pathogen related conditions.

He has expertise in experimental design, assay performance, data quality control, data analysis and data interpretation in genomics; from both microarray and Next Gen platforms and proteomics using MALDI-MS. These works have involved a variety of model organisms from micro-organisms, fruit flies, mice to humans.
