A hallmark of life is organisms’ ability to sense and respond to internal and external signals. Our research interests focus on quantitative and predictive understanding of dynamics in signal transduction and regulation of the coding and the non-coding genome related to human health. We are using a cross-disciplinary approach of biology, physics, engineering and computer science by combing quantitative single-molecule experiments in individual cells with genetics and mathematical modeling. Results from this quantitative systems biology research will help to answer key questions in signal transduction and gene regulation of healthy and diseased tissue, and will significantly deepen our understanding of fundamental biophysical and molecular principles in various research fields.
