Dr. Luis Sordo Vieira joined Jackson Laboratories in July 2018 to work in the Laubenbacher laboratory as a postdoctoral associate. His main interests lie in cancer systems biology. He is particularly interested in multi-scale mathematical modeling incorporating genetic and epigenetic data to investigate the role of iron and the tumor microenvironment on cancer progression. He was previously a postdoctoral fellow for one year at UConn Health's Center for Quantitative Medicine working on mathematical analysis of intracellular signaling networks. As a graduate student at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Sordo Vieira received the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Student Fellowship and proved a major part of an old number theoretic conjecture (usually attributed to Emil Artin) with his advisor Dr. David B. Leep. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in physics.
Dr. Sordo Vieira's current research is in multi-scale mathematical modeling incorporating genetic and epigenetic data to investigate the role of iron and the tumor microenvironment on cancer progression. He is also interested in control methods of Boolean Networks.
“It is a time to reflect and admire what we have achieved as a community. More so,it is a time to reflect on how we can improve the future of the Hispanic community, especially those that have been discriminated against and who continue to fight injustice.”
