The research in my laboratory is focused on understanding signaling networks within cells and how these signaling events modulate gene expression and proliferation. Extracellular signals are routed through signaling networks where they can activate multiple pathways, integrate at different levels, and form positive and negative feedback loops. The laboratory uses a combination of computational modeling and experimental biology to gain a systems understanding of the network and how it regulates gene expression and proliferation.
Tutorials in my laboratory can include a wide range of topics from computational modeling to biochemical analysis of signaling events to proteomics using reverse phase high density lysate microarrays.
