A/Prof Lan Nguyen has been a leading figure in computational systems biology for over a decade. He currently leads the Integrative Network Modelling Laboratory at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) and is a former Victorian Cancer Agency Mid-Career Fellow. Prior to establishing his own lab at the BDI, he undertook postdoctoral training under renowned systems biology pioneer Prof Boris Kholodenko at Systems Biology Ireland in Dublin. Internationally recognized for his expertise in systems mechanistic modelling and integrative analysis of cellular signalling networks, A/Prof Nguyen employs interdisciplinary approaches that blend mathematical modelling with experimental analyses. This unique methodology has significantly advanced our holistic understanding of complex cell signalling networks. His recent research focuses on applying predictive modelling to uncover hidden mechanisms of adaptive resistance to targeted cancer drugs and identify novel combination treatment strategies. A/Prof Nguyen is passionate about training the next generation of interdisciplinary researchers, fostering a highly cross-disciplinary lab environment that combines both computational ("dry") and experimental ("wet") expertise under one roof.
