My lab utilizes systems biology and tissue engineering to analyze how cells make decisions in a variety of biological contexts. We utilize an iterative approach, where we develop model culture systems that allow us to study these diseases in a controlled environment, use a variety of high-throughput experimental methods to gather information about the cellular signaling network, and employ computational models to interpret the data. Ultimately, our models will be utilized to identify new drug targets, match patients to the most effective drugs, and identify methods to direct cellular behavior in tissue engineering. Currently, we are especially interested in ovarian cancer, normal and pathological angiogenesis, and wound healing.
