Herbert Sauro is a Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington in Seattle. His interests include anything to do with mechanistic modeling of cellular networks. Early in his career he helped develop metabolic control analysis and wrote one of the first popular pathway simulators for PCs. He was a founding member of the team that developed the systems biology exchange language, SBML, and later initiated the development of the synthetic biology open language (SBOL). He is an active member of COMBINE as well as the multiscale modeling consortium IMAG/MSM. He is director of the NIH center for reproducible modeling that aims to encourage authors to publish reproducible and reusable models in biomedical research. His current interest in CSBC is to develop new approaches to modeling that couples machine learning with novel experimental techniques in order to generate highly predictive mechanistic models of signaling pathways involved in cancer. He has also written a number of textbooks on pathway modeling, enzyme kinetics and control theory.
