The Lopez Lab is working to understand the link between stochastic molecular interactions, complex reaction networks, single-cell outcomes, and emergent community behaviors. The lab employs numerical and computational methods, in close collaboration with experiments, to explain cellular behavior and formulate testable hypotheses. Current research topics in the lab involve dynamics of transcription factor and signaling networks, cell-population dynamics at single-cell resolution, Bayesian inference and machine learning for model calibration and analysis, and high-performance distributed computing.
