Michel Cuendet

Senior Research Scientist

Michel A. Cuendet has a Master’s degree in Astrophysics from EPFL and a second Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics focusing on machine learning, statistics, and high-performance computing from Ecole Polytechnique. In 2002, he was granted a Swiss National Science Foundation fellowship to pursue a doctoral thesis ETH Zurich focusing on non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In 2007 he joined the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) to work on T-cell receptor function and the development of peptide inhibitors of protein-protein interactions. In 2010, a second Swiss National Science Foundation fellowship allowed him to joint New York University for a postdoctoral stay on advanced MD methodology. In 2013 M. A. Cuendet joined Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) as an Instructor in Computational Biomedicine, where he focused on protein allostery and the mechanism of membrane transporters, while continuing his work on T-cell receptor function. Since the fall of 2017 M. A. Cuendet holds joint appointments as a Group Leader in the Service of Personalized Analytical Oncology of the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), a Senior Scientist at the SIB, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at WCM.
