Dr James Lyons-Weiler is a Pittsburgh-area research scientist. He is a systems biologist, geneticist, lecturer, and author, who has worked collaboratively for over twenty-five years on more than one hundred research studies in the areas of biological diversity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infectious disease, autism and other aspects of clinical, biomedical and translational research.
He earned his BA in Biology at the State University of New York at Owego, his Master’s in Zoology at Ohio State University, his PhD at University of Nevada at Reno in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology, and postdoctoral work in Computational Molecular Biology at Pennsylvania State University.
He has published numerous papers with advanced novel methods for genomic, proteomic, and integromic data analysis. He has taught genetics, biology, evolutionary biology, bioinformatics and clinical research principles. He served as the founding Editor-in-Chief of Cancer Informatics. He was the recipient of the Sloan/US DOE Postdoctoral Award in Computational Molecular Biology, under the tutelage of Dr Masatoshi Nei and Web Miller at the Pennsylvania State University.
He was the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the open access, peer-reviewed research journal Cancer Informatics. Dr Lyons-Weiler is an expert in study design and multivariate data analysis. He has authored three books: “Ebola: An Evolving Story,” “Cures vs. Profits: Successes in Translational Research”. For his latest book “The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism”, he reviewed over 3,000 research studies, and cited more than 2,000 of these studies in the published work. He is the current Director of The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge.
Dr Lyons-Weiler’s CMP presentation is entitled COVID-19 Vaccines and Myocarditis.
