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.
CSB Senior Research Scientist, Marie-Helene Disatnik, Ph.D., has had her work on the preservation of motochondrial function featured by the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions. According to her research, inhibiting mitochondrial fragmentation by selectively inhibiting the interaction between the proteins Read More »
