Profiles in "Systems Biology" Expertise Area

  • Mangone is interested in study how eukaryotic RNA transcription is terminated and how the messenger RNA is regulated on its way to the expression into proteins, using the wound worm C. elegans as model system.
  • Vermaas and his team conduct basic and applied research on cyanobacteria, a group of photosynthetic microbes, using these organisms as a chassis to produce useful compounds (biofuels, green chemicals) from sunlight and CO2.
  • Wang's research efforts include understanding synthetic multistable gene networks, the role of noise in cell differentiation, and molecular evolution, and systems biology research on small network motifs with feedbacks.
  • Junwen Wang is a Professor of Biomedical Informatics working on bioinformatics, computational genomics and precision medicine.
  • Plaisier works to answer open questions about human diseases by turning large-scale patient data into integrative models that can be used to describe novel disease biology or discover drug targets.
  • Xiaojun Tian is an assistant professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering. Recently, he received the prestigious NIH Maximizing Investigators' Research Award (MIRA) Award and NSF Career Award.
  • Geiler-Samerotte is an assistant professor in the Center for Mechanisms of Evolution and School of Life Sciences. Her lab investigates how basic features of cells influence the way those cells can evolve.
  • Sears has conducted cardiometabolic disease and cancer research since 1995 and is an internationally recognized expert. The scope of her research activities spans the molecular to population health levels.
