Ronald C. Taylor, PhD
The Divisions of Immunobiology and Biomedical Informatics
I served as a senior computational biologist and bioinformatician in the Miraldi lab, leaving in June 2018 for a position at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where I work as a bioinformatics advisor in the High Performance Computing and Informatics Office, Center for Information Technology (CIT), on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. I develop software, perform analysis and modeling, and provide general bioinformatics support for intramural NIH researchers.
