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 Stanford SPARK Program, founded by CSB Faculty Dr. Daria Mochly-Rosen, continues to provide the platform to better bridge between science at the bench and drug development for treatment. Read all about the process and a brief history of the Read More »
