ANGELA OLIVEIRA PISCO, PH.D.

Associate Director of Data Science, Quantitative Cell Science

Pisco studied Biomedical Engineering, obtaining a Ph.D. in Systems Biology, allowing her to operate at the intersection of biology and medicine as viewed through the lens of data science. During her Ph.D., she investigated how drug resistance emerges during chemotherapy and discovered that cancer cells can adapt to the presence of a drug by acquiring a reversible resistant behavior in response to the treatment. Before joining the CZ Biohub, Pisco was a postdoctoral fellow at King’s College London, where she explored the mechanisms of cellular differentiation in the skin. Pisco leads the Quantitative Cell Science arm of CZ Biohub’s Data Science team, building tools and datasets that advance understanding of health and disease.
