Robert Murphy is the Ray and Stephanie Lane Professor of Computational Biology. He co-founded the Computational Biology Ph.D. Program which is jointly administered with the University of Pittsburgh. He helped developed the first formal undergraduate program in computational biology in 1987 and founded the Merck Computational Biology and Chemistry program at Carnegie Mellon in 1999. His research group does both experimental and computational cell biology, with a particular emphasis on developing fully-automated methods to understand the subcellular locations of proteins and how they change during development or disease (location proteomics). Dr. Murphy received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology and his BA from Columbia College.
