Paul DePietro, PhD

Executive Director Knowledge Informatics

Paul DePietro leads the design and development of the OmniSeq Knowledgebase that serves targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and clinical trial information to OmniSeq clinical and research products.

Prior to joining OmniSeq, Paul was a member of the Computational Biology laboratory at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, where he developed tools to analyze the connections between biological functions and protein structures. These tools were incorporated into the Structural Biology KnowledgeBase portal for the Protein Structure Initiative.

Paul received his Bachelor’s of Science in Physics from the University of Scranton. He earned his Masters of Science and PhD from American University in experimental nuclear physics where he was part of the collaboration at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in Menlo Park, California to measure proton and neutron spin structure functions. His focus was to maintain and analyze data from the Cherenkov detector systems and was a member of the collaboration student analysis team.
