Topics and Expertise: systems biology

Catera Wilder, PhD

Assistant Professor

I am a biomedical engineer and systems biologist who combines my understanding of signaling system networks in innate immunity with my expertise in molecular biology and tissue remodeling to address pressing questions about immunity and immunopathogenesis.

 

Dumont Lab reveals workings of macromolecular machines

Behind enemy lines

New research promises to take the guesswork out of matching individual cancer cases to the most effective choices of chemotherapy.

Steven Altschuler, PhD

Professor

In my lab, I seek to understand design principles of biological systems and how biological networks rewire during disease progression. I bring to my biology research a blend of experimental science, engineering, and mathematics. Projects in my lab integrate advance technology, experiment, machine-...

Symposium on the future of therapeutics inaugurates new UCSF department

In the first symposium held by the newly minted UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, researchers described progress in the fields of systems biology, pharmacogenomics, and bioengineering, and how scientists in these fields are working in concert to develop novel diagnostics an

Tang talks about a turning point in science

By understanding the complicated systems that make up biology, we will understand more about the individual parts, how they work together, communicate, and mobilize into action, according to Chao Tang, PhD, UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member.

Systems biology center connects UC and Peking University

A research collaboration between the University of California (UC) and Peking University will integrate the biological data acquisition strengths of the former with the physical and theoretical strengths of the latter, a move which scientists anticipate will ultimately lead to more effective, safer...

Systems biology changes approach to science questions

Thinking like engineers has transformed a new wave of UCSF scientists into systems experts who use big computers and big technology to ask the biggest question of all: How does life work? A new field called systems biology looks at how all components of biological systems work together.
