Dariusz Plewczynski, PhD is a professor at University of Warsaw in Center of New Technologies CeNT, Warsaw, Poland, the head of Laboratory of Functional and Structural Genomics and the principal investigator at Mathematics and Information Science Department at Warsaw University of Technology.

His main expertise covers computational genomics, biophysics and bioinformatics. He is actively developing the computational intelligence algorithms, perform biophysical simulations and apply computational modeling to various interdisciplinary problems in Human genomics. His recent achievements cover qualitative and quantitative biological data analysis, the general systems theory and interdisciplinary problems in the context of bioinformatics, genomics, drug design, and systems biology; ensemble learning systems, meta-clustering techniques.

He received the MS, and PhD degrees in Theoretical Physics (phase transitions) and Physical Chemistry (stochastic processes) in 1995, and 2001, respectively. He was postdoc researcher at International Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology in 2001 under the supervision of Dr. Leszek Rychlewski. Dr. Dariusz Plewczynski worked with Dr. Adam Godzik in The Burnham-Sanford Institute in San Diego, CA, USA in 2002. He was a postdoc at Helsinki University, bioinformatics laboratory of Prof. Liisa Holm in 2003. In 2004 he was visiting researcher hosted by Dr Uwe Koch at Merck Research Laboratories (IRBM) in Rome, Italy. From 2002 till 2011, he was the assistant professor at University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland and the head of chemo-informatics unit at BioInfoBank Institute, Poznan, Poland. In 2011, He visited Stanford University within Top500 Polish Ministry of Science programme. He received DSc degree (habilitation) in Computer Science and Bioinformatics in 2012 at the Computer Science Institute of Polish Academy of Sciences.

From 2012 up to now, He conduct research as a professor at University of Warsaw, and from 2017 He perform educational duties at Warsaw University of Technology. He is involved in bioinformatics projects in the Leading National Research Centre of Medical University of Bialystok (Prof. Adam Krętowski) and Medical University of Warsaw (Prof. Rafał Płoski and Prof. Dominika Nowis) from 2012. He was visiting professor at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine & Yale University within the senior Fulbright fellowship in 2013-2014 working with Prof. Charles Lee. In 2019, He is co-affiliated with University of California, Davis in 2019 as the sabbatical fellow at Computer Science and Engineering Department collaborating with Raissa D’Souza and Harris A. Lewin.
