My research interest is in strongly interacting biological systems at the cellular level. My group combines theoretical and computational approaches with close collaboration with experimental groups. Our models incorporate the specific components and interactions of each biological system, and use a parsimonious mathematical description of their dynamics. After successfully describing the normal behavior of the modeled system, we use the models to predict previously unexplored conditions and to find the perturbations that lead to a desired behavior. This type of predictive modeling plays an important role in developing effective therapeutic strategies for complex diseases.
