Aviv Regev, a computational biologist, joined the Broad Institute as a core member and MIT as a faculty member in the Department of Biology in 2006.
Regev’s research centers on understanding how complex molecular circuits function and evolve in the face of genetic and environmental changes, over time-scales ranging from minutes to millions of years. Prior to joining the Broad Institute, Regev was a fellow at the Bauer Center for Genomics Research at Harvard University, where she developed new approaches to the reconstruction of regulatory networks and modules from genomic data.
Regev is director of the Klarman Cell Observatory and the Cell Circuits Program at the Broad. Regev was named a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigator in 2013. She had previously been an HHMI Early Career Scientist. She is a recipient of the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, a Sloan fellowship from the Sloan Foundation, the Overton Prize from the International Society for Computational Biology, and the Earl and Thressa Stadtman Scholar Award from the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Regev received her M.Sc. from Tel Aviv University, studying biology, computer science, and mathematics in the Interdisciplinary Program for the Fostering of Excellence. She received her Ph.D. in computational biology from Tel Aviv University.
