Alexander Krohannon, M.S.
Lecturer and Program Director, Biomedical Informatics
- M.S. Bioinformatics, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (2020)
- B.S. Biochemistry, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (2013)
Alexander Krohannon started his career as a classically trained biochemist, developing methods to study drug-protein interactions, their effects, and their pharmacokinetic profiles. The desire to better understand these biological systems problems led him to earn his Master of Science in Bioinformatics degree.
Since joining the bioinformatics community, he has become fascinated with the burgeoning field of systems biology: how small changes in DNA-protein interactions or RNA-protein interactions can result in large physiological changes.
Krohannon’s recent projects have been focused on mining Protein Occupancy Profile (POP) Sequencing data and providing novel methodologies and applications of the data. In 2023 he joined the faculty at the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering in Indianapolis.
Krohannon is actively involved in teaching the fundamentals of biomedical informatics and growing both the program and the community. He also is a faculty advisor for the Biomedical Informatics and Luddy Journal clubs.
