Prof David Adelson is the Chair of Bioinformatics, and the Zhengdong Chair of Molecular Traditional Chinese Medicine in the School of Biological Sciences. Prof. Adelson is also Co-Director (with Prof Gary Glonek) of the Bioinformatics Hub. His current research focuses on the non-coding portions of animal genomes, and the computational analysis of repetitive DNA, also known as Junk DNA, in order to understand large scale evolutionary/structural changes in the animal genomes. His group also looks at the complex molecular effects of Traditional Chinese Medical to provide a molecular basis for understanding the mode of action of TCM and support its integration into Western Medicine.
Prior to moving to Adelaide in 2007, Prof Adelson worked at Texas A&M University from 2001, and before that worked for CSIRO from 1988. Prof Adelson obtained his PhD in Biomedical Sciences (Biochemistry), from the John A Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 1985 and carried out postdoctoral research at Duke University.
