We are a computational biology lab focusing on systems biology at the cell and tissue levels. We are developing computational methods and an ecosystem theory of tissue function, based on single-cell genomics data, that considers cell-cell interactions, cell growth, and cell internal mechanisms, such as pathways, reactions, and causal relationships, to help understand development, cancer as well as regenerative wound healing processes.
