Research in Plain Language

Biology is highly complex and involves interactions at many scales. These scales range from genes and molecules to organs and the body as a whole. In order to treat common diseases like obesity or autism, it is necessary to understand how all the pieces fit together. My lab uses mathematical and computational tools to quantitatively connect the various scales. This provides a global picture of complex diseases.
