    Biography

    Personal Statement

    Philipp Antczak is a computational biologist with extensive knowledge in Systems ecotoxicology and in particular in linking molecular responses (OMICs) to phenotypic traits in a number of organisms. He develops tools for molecular toxicity identification and evaluation (mTIE) as well as using molecular response data to understand basal toxicity in D. magna, D. rerio and other organisms. Current funding has come from NERC, STFC, EU, as well as AstraZeneca and Cefas. He is currently working on developing a compound-gene-disease map in Danio rerio to predict adverse outcomes to a large number of environmentally relevant pollutants including endocrine disruptors.
