Belinda Akpa joined North Carolina State University in August 2015 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Synthetic and Systems Biology. As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences, Dr. Akpa’s research focuses on developing mathematical models to connect molecular events to dynamic physiological outcomes. She has a particular interest in using numerical simulations to bridge length-scales in integrated computational and experimental investigations - with the aim of accelerating the translation of molecular and cellular level findings to medical applications.
