Research Interests

Michael Palumbo elevates existing center-wide IT solutions to their next generation, including but not limited to Cloud computing and storage environments. He assists in the development of innovative modernization efforts to meet the needs of newly proposed public health initiatives and works closely with various stakeholders in existing and future systems, and with IT solution providers, to design and implement the most efficient architectures. These efforts include data accessibility and integration with both internal and external partners.

Beyond these Center wide efforts, Michael assists the Bioinformatics Core in their efforts to meet the bioinformatic needs of the Center’s research scientists and public health programs – specifically, with cloud-based analysis solutions. The Bioinformatics Core assists users in applying a variety of bioinformatic methods to their research needs. Given the increased application of next generation sequencing (NGS) experiments to biological research, the application of NGS methods to research and public health service programs has become the primary focus of the core. In the ever-expanding universe of bioinformatics tools, scientists working in the core are adept at discovering and using the best tools available for each research project. When a specific software tool does not exist for a particular project, the core may be capable of developing the necessary tools.
