The Department of Chemical and Systems Biology explores the molecular mechanisms that underlie cellular function and contribute to human disease. Our laboratories emphasize interdisciplinary research that spans the biomedical sciences, including signal transduction, cell cycle regulation, chromatin remodeling, protein homeostasis, metabolism, and cell differentiation. By integrating genetic technologies, biochemical and chemical tools, quantitative measurements, and computational modeling, we strive to deconstruct these complex biological systems, predict emergent behaviors, and translate these discoveries into new medical therapies.
The Department of Chemical and Systems Biology and The Sterling Visiting Professorship presents Ted Meyer, “Scarred for Life: Mono-prints of Human Scars.” This project chronicles the trauma and courage of people who have lived through accidents and health crises. Dates Read More »
