Dr Joshua Ho is the Head of the Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine Laboratory at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. He is also a NHMRC/National Heart Foundation Career Development Fellow, and a conjoint senior lecturer at UNSW. Dr Ho was awarded his BSc (Hon 1, Medal) and PhD in Bioinformatics from the University of Sydney. He then completed an interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship at the Harvard Medical School, USA. His research focuses on developing fast and reliable bioinformatics methods to identify the genetic cause of inherited heart diseases, using a range of approaches such as whole genome sequencing, single-cell RNA-seq, machine learning, systems biology, cloud computing, and software testing and quality assurance. His research excellence was recognised by the award the NSW Ministerial Award for Rising Stars in Cardiovascular Research (2015), the Australian Epigenetics Alliance’s Illumina Early Career Research Award (2015) and the Young Tall Poppy Science Award (2016). The Ho laboratory is currently recruiting honours, PhD students, bioinformatics industry interns, and summer scholarship students. For more information about research projects, please visit: http://bioinformatics.victorchang.edu.au/
