Gary Bader is a Professor at The Donnelly Centre at the University of Toronto and an international leader in the field of Computational Biology. The Bader lab uses molecular interaction, pathway and ‘omics data to gain a ‘causal’ mechanistic understanding of normal and disease phenotypes. They are developing novel computational approaches that combine molecular interaction and pathway information with ‘omics data to develop clinically predictive models and identify therapeutically targetable pathways. This research, for instance, helped identify a histone methylation inhibitor as the first therapeutic candidate for pediatric ependymoma, a common childhood brain cancer (work with Michael Taylor at SickKids).

Gary Bader completed post-doctoral work in the group of Chris Sander in the Computational Biology Center (cBio) at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Gary developed the Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) during his PhD in the lab of Christopher Hogue in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto and the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He completed a BSc in Biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal.
The Donnelly Centre is an interdisciplinary centre at the University of Toronto (UofT), with many UofT departments represented and with occupants usually cross-appointed to many departments.
