Norman Pavelka


Dr Pavelka received his Degree in Biotechnology from the University of Milano-Bicocca in 2001 and his Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in 2006. He formerly worked as a graduate student in Prof Paola Castagnoli’s lab at the University of Milano-Bicocca, where he developed his microarray data analysis skills and contributed to numerous Functional Genomics projects aimed at understanding the role of dendritic cells in host-pathogen interactions. Dr Pavelka then joined Prof Rong Li’s group at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in May 2006, where he published seminal research papers on the role of aneuploidy in evolution of yeast cells. While at the Stowers Institute, he collaborated with Dr Michael Washburn, publishing important contributions to the proteomics data analysis field. In October 2010, Dr Pavelka was awarded the A*STAR Investigatorship in Biomedical Sciences and set up his laboratory at the Singapore Immunology Network in May 2011, to study the ecology and evolution of host-microbe interactions and the genome changes that underlie such complex and dynamic processes. In 2013, Dr Pavelka became Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of Biological Sciences of the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore and in 2015 a Visiting Scientist at the Department of Internal Medicine of Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Since 2011, Dr Pavelka is serving as an Associate Editor at Frontiers in Genetics (Section of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology) and serves on the Editorial Board of Microbial Pathogenesis since 2014 and on that of Scientific Reports since 2015.
