Daria Merkurjev


Daria Merkurjev did her undergraduate work in Mathematics at UCLA and has received her Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at UCSD under Dr. Michael Rosenfeld. Her Ph.D. research focused on investigating the molecular and architectural strategies responsible for integrating genome-wide transcriptional responses to diverse signaling systems critical for physiological and behavioral processes in vertebrates. Her research also includes understanding the factors affecting susceptibility to cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
