Makedonka Mitreva, Ph.D.,  McDonnell Genome Institute

Dr. Makedonka Mitreva joined Washington University School of Medicine in 2002 and currently is an Associate Professor in both the departments of Medicine and Genetics and serves as Assistant Director of the McDonnell Genome Institute (MGI). She oversees the Department of Microbes, Vectors, and Pathogens at MGI that provides a data management platform and performs comprehensive analysis of omics data (transcriptomes, proteomes, regulomes, genomes, and metagenomes) in a comparative context. Dr. Mitreva is applying integrated approaches to the exploration of multi-omics data, prompting a deeper understanding of an organism at the molecular level.

Dr. Mitreva’s current research focuses on infectious diseases (parasites, bacteria, fungi, and viruses)

• Genomes & Evolution
• Gene Expression & Regulation
• Antigen Discovery
• Host Response
• Drug Targets
• Population Genomics
• Microbiome
• Databases & Analysis Tools

Dr. Mitreva is a leader of the Center for the Clinical Genomics of Microbial Systems (CC-GEMS), a collaboration between MGI and Washington University.

Dr. Mitreva received B.S. and M.S. degrees from Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Macedonia and a Ph.D. from the foremost European center for nematology - Wageningen University and Research Centre (WURC) in The Netherlands.
