Sabah Kadri earned a PhD in Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) using an interdisciplinary approach to study microRNAs involved in echinoderm development. Since then, her research work has always been focused on using the power of next generation sequencing (NGS) methods innovatively in the field of Computational Genomics. In 2012, she joined the Lander Lab at the Broad Institute, where she worked on end-RNASeq technologies and continued working on non-coding RNA populations, especially large non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs). She joined the Genomic and Molecular Pathology (GMP) division at the University of Chicago in 2014, and has since, extended work in NGS technologies to clinical research. Sabah is the Director of the Bioinformatics team at GMP where her focus is to launch clinical tests in oncology by designing, implementation and maintenance of novel computational tools and pipelines. She leads Bioinformatics research projects through the GMP. Her full profile can be found here

In her spare time, Sabah performs improv shows with her ensemble across comedy clubs in Chicago and teaches Bollywood cardio for Bollywood Groove.
