Helder Nakaya is an assistant professor at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, in the Department of Clinical Analyses and Toxicology of the School of Pharmaceutical Science. His lab is focused on investigating the basis of infectious diseases using computational systems biology. He is also an adjunct assistant professor at Emory University School of Medicine, USA, in the Department of Pathology. With a PhD in Molecular Biology and extensive training in Bioinformatics, he became an expert in Systems Vaccinology, an interdisciplinary field that combines systems-wide measurements, networks, and predictive modeling in the context of vaccines and infectious disease. Dr. Nakaya has developed systems biology approaches to understand and predict the mechanisms of vaccine induced-immunity for Yellow Fever, seasonal Influenza, Meningococcal, and Tularemia vaccines.
