Dr. Shreejoy Tripathy is an Independent Scientist in the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics at CAMH. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
He completed his Post-Doc in Bioinformatics and Neuroinformatics at the University of British Columbia, and received his PhD in Neural Computation from Carnegie Mellon University. He received his BSc in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
Areas of Research
Dr. Tripathy’s research aims to develop a multi-scale understanding of brain cell type diversity, bridging genetics and gene expression with cell and circuit physiology. His lab develops machine learning and statistical methods to help neuroscientists translate information at different levels of organization, from gene expression to neuron electrophysiology. The long-term goals of this work are to better understand the cellular changes that underlie psychiatric and neurological disorders, and to ultimately develop approaches that can help guide tailored treatments for mental health.
Current major projects in his lab include: 1) understanding how single-cell gene expression determines features of neuronal electrophysiology; and 2) understanding how neuronal activity differs between people due to different demographics and genetics.
A major focus of Dr. Tripathy’s work is to collaboratively build large-scale and personalized simulations of the human brain and nervous system. Though his lab is largely computational, Dr. Tripathy collaborates extensively with many experimental groups in Toronto and beyond.
