CSB Department Chair:
James Chen, Ph.D.
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.
Join us for the 1st Stanford Chromosome Dynamics and Genome Maintenance Symposium on Friday, March 31st from 9:15am-5:30pm. Click here for more details, and to register/present a poster by March 15th!
