Bernhard Ø. Palsson

Galetti Professor of Bioengineering, University of California, San Diego.

Bernhard Ø. PalssonProfessor Palsson earned a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1984. He held a faculty position at the University of Michigan from 1984 to 1995. He has been with UCSD since 1995. He is the author of over 250 peer reviewed scientific articles. He co-authored the text Tissue Engineering, Prentice Hall in 2004, and Systems Biology, Cambridge University Press in 2006. He sits on the editorial boards of several bioengineering and biotechnology journals.

Professor Palsson current research at UCSD focuses on 1) the reconstruction of genome-scale biochemical reaction networks, 2) the development of mathematical analysis procedures for genome-scale models, and 3) the experimental verification of genome-scale models with current emphasis on cellular metabolism and transcriptional regulation in E. coli and Yeast.
