Ashish Bino George, Ph.D.
Computational Scientist II
Ashish Bino George is a computational scientist II in the PRISM team within the Cancer Program at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. PRISM is a novel technology that allows for rapid high-throughput multiplexed screening of cancer drug candidate molecules against almost a thousand cancer cell lines. George's work focuses on developing new methodologies for refining and extending the capabilities of the PRISM technology as well as the design and execution of new data analysis strategies.
Prior to joining the Broad, George completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he combined mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, and machine learning to understand microbial communities and other complex populations. His work demonstrated the universal dynamics underlying diverse complex populations: humans in cities, trees in tropical forests, and microbes in the gut.
George earned his Ph.D. in physics from Boston University and a B.Tech in engineering physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.
