Michael Keiser (University of California, San Francisco)

Michael J Keiser PhD is a Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Ben Barres Investigator and an Allen Distinguished Investigator. Michael joined the UCSF faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2014, in the Dept. of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases, with appointments in the Dept. of Bioengineering & Therapeutic Sciences and the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute. Before this, he co-founded a startup bringing systems pharmacology methods for drug-target prediction to pharma and the US FDA, where they are in use today. He holds multiple degrees from Stanford, including a BSc. in Computer Science. Broadly, the Keiser lab combines machine learning with chemical biology methods to investigate how drug-like small molecules perturb protein networks to achieve their therapeutic effects.
