Quantitative Systems Biology Faculty

Biological systems are complex and dynamic, and predicting their behavior from properties of individual parts is often difficult. Systems Biology is a field that is emerging as central to many areas of cell and developmental biology as well as medicine. Systems Biology focuses on the study of the dynamics of systems of biological components. This highly interdisciplinary field integrates approaches from various disciplines ranging from applied math to molecular biology. People in the Department of Cell Biology interact with the Center for Systems Biology to develop quantitative methodology designed to analyze biological networks in the contexts of both experimental organisms and clinical medicine.
