Dr. Brown received a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Cornell University, Ithaca in 1992. He served as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manitoba, Winnepeg and for the USDA ARS Plant Genetic Resources laboratory in Griffin, Georgia. He joined the faculty of NYU School of Medicine in 1997 in the Department of Cell Biology. He has been Course Director for the Bioinformatics course in the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences for 12 years, for which he has received the Dean's Recognition Citation for Excellence in Medical Education.
Dr Brown is an author of 28 peer reviewed publications in biomedical journals including PNAS, J. Biological Chemistry, Immunity, J. Immunology, Theoretical and Applied Genetics, DNA Repair, and J. Plant Physiology. He is also the author of three widely used textbooks in the area of Bioinformatics and Medical Genomics. Dr. Brown currently participates as co-investigator or bioinformatics consultant in 4 NIH funded research projects (NCI, NCRR, NIDCR, and Fogarty International Center).
Dr. Brown has served on grant review study sections for the NSF and NIH and has consulted for the WHO Bioinformatics Training Program. He was awarded the Burroughs Wellcome/American Society for Microbiology visiting professor fellowship at North Carolina Central University.
Dr. Brown's research is primarily in the area of genomics. He contributes data management and data analysis expertise to multiple projects that make use of high-throughput Next-Generation DNA sequencing technology including ChIP-seq, Human Microbiome Project, and cancer mutation screening. His past work includes pipelines for the analysis of EST sequences, study of the variation in malaria surface antigen genes, and computational modeling of T-cell antigen display preferences.
Dr. Brown also maintains a blog regarding issues and thoughts in next generation sequencing at http://nextgenseq.blogspot.com/.
