We in the Computation and Theoretical Biology area of research focus use a variety of computational methods and strategies to investigate a large range of complex biomedical problems. Our research approaches generally fall into three related areas. In the first, researchers probe complex cellular and system level processes by developing and testing quantitative mathematical models of them. In the second area, we are developing and employing methods for analysis of large biological and medical databases. In the third, we analyze and predict structures as well as chemical and physical properties of proteins and protein complexes. Follow the links below for each faculty member to discover more thorough descriptions of our research programs.
