Vlad Constantinescu, Mr.
Group: Systems Biology of AgingDepartment: Bioinformatics & Structural Biochemistry
PhD student, Machine learning research assistant
Since 2015, his interest has risen towards more academic/research topics and he has been involved more and more in applied research in machine learning (AITIA One group), focused on complex systems, statistical machine learning/deep learning and application of these concepts to medical science and biology. In 2017, he has joined the Computational Biology of Aging Group at the Institute of Biochemistry.
Vlad is academically interested in statistical machine learning, focusing on the theory of emerging complexity/intelligence, approached with methods from probability theory, information theory, computer science and statistical mechanics.

Starting 02.09.2016, the Institute of Biochemistry of the Romanian Academy is implementing the project “Multi-omics prediction system for prioritization of gerontological interventions”, co-funded through European Fund for Regional Development, in accordance with the funding contract signed by the Ministry of National Education and Scientific Research. The total funding for the project is 8.524.757,50 lei, of which 8.502.557,50 lei represent non-reimbursable funding. The project’s duration is 48 months.
The Systems Biology of Aging team is grateful for the "Microsoft Azure for Research" sponsorship awarded to our group. We have received cloud computing resources worth the equivalent of 20,000$ credits, and this has greatly helped us to speed up some of our research projects.
