Stefano Monti is a Computational Biologist and joined the BU faculty in January 2011 in the section of Computational Biomedicine, with joint appointments in the Biostatistics Department and the Bioinformatics program. Monti received his Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Pittsburgh, and completed his training with a post-doctoral fellowship at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. His doctoral and post-doctoral research focused on the development of machine learning and knowledge discovery methodologies, with a particular emphasis on probabilistic reasoning and Bayesian approaches to modeling biomedical data. Since 2001, he has worked in the field of Cancer Genomics, first as a Research Scientist at the Whitehead Institute’s Center for Genome Research, and later as a Computational Biologist in the Cancer Program at the Broad Institute.

Dr. Monti's laboratory integrates systems biology, machine learning, and bioinformatics approaches to investigate the molecular drivers of human disease, with the goals of advancing prevention and care. This multidisciplinary effort relies on the development of novel computational methodologies, and on the design of experiments based on the generation and integrative analysis of high-throughput multi-omics data, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets and developing accurate diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. Specific areas of research include the study of the molecular mechanisms of tumor initiation and progression and of the role played in it by environmental exposure, as well as the study of the biological factors contributing to healthy aging and extreme longevity.
