Research Summary

The overarching goal of our research is to identify mechanisms involved in complex human disease progression and use this knowledge to develop novel therapies for individual patients. We apply a holistic clinically relevant quantitative systems biology and pharmacology approach. This involves the development, implementation, and integration of several high throughput and high content molecular and cell-based technologies and models to comprehensively define fundamental biological processes that are perturbed in particular diseases.
