Tara paglino, MS Bioinformatics Analyst
Tara started growing her bioinformatics skills in the Nadeau Lab, part of the Sean N. Parker Centers at Stanford University in the department of Medicine. Tara was involved in many immunologic studies, including one that mapped transcriptional data to phenotypes of discordant asthmatic twins (publication pending). She then received her Master's in Bioinformatics from Northeastern University, where she created a classifier to help diagnose Clonal Hematopoiesis using genomic and clinical data through neural network and SVM models.
Tara joined Juvena in August 2018 as an intern to complete her Masters thesis, joining full time in January 2019. At Juvena, Tara has combined her passion for health in every aspect of her life with a commitment to improving health-span with protein therapeutics. Tara has developed R pipeline for the HTS assays for factor screening and a UI factor database for factor screening hits. She has also created an app fo In Vitro pipeline data for non-expert data analysis. She is currently working on building our In Vivo analysis pipeline, ImageQC with ML, and assisting the DL projects.
Tara also enjoys graphic design and data visualization. When she’s not analyzing biological data, she enjoys blogging about health and nutrition, painting and hanging out with her dog Ruby.
