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.
Vivek Bajpai is a recipient of the Department of Defense Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research Program Horizon Award, which supports postdoctoral fellows pursuing careers in cancer research. Vivek is a postdoc in the Wysocka lab. Congratulations!
