Juan Arango Ossa

Bioinformatics Engineer I

Juan E. Arango, is a Bioinformatics Engineer in Elli Pappaemanuil’s lab. It’s main goal within the team is to provide active support to research projects by the design and development of tools, databases and software infrastructure to run, process and analyze high-throughput next-generation sequencing data.


Juan studied mechatronics engineering at the School of Engineering of Antioquia and biomedical engineering at the University CES, in Medellin, Colombia. He has combined experiences in software developement and biomedical research, both within the Industry and the Academics field.


Some of his work experiences comes from working in research in ultrasound for medical research in the Institut Langevin, in Paris, France; Biomedical Application Engineer for latin-america in Materialise, a leading belgium company specialized in software for 3D printing and surgical planning in medicine; Senior Software Engineer for Sciensa, one of Brazil’s biggest software companies; and Data Science Engineer for Premex, specialized in analytics for smart animal farms.

He has been a professor at the School Enginnering of Antioquia, for second year undergraduate engineering students, teaching Introduction to Algorithms and Software Development.


He defines himself as someone who loves teaching, learning, and facing new challenges in cutting-edge projects driven by innovation that are building the latest technologies in medicine.


Some of his publications related to past projects are:
