Functional analysis of complex omics datasets through systems or network biology approaches with applications in cancer research: personalized medicine and biomarkers, translational cancer research, drug mechanism of action, drug side effect inference and repurposing, combined therapies, and cancer pathways modeling at multiple scales. We also have projects in innate immunology.

We mainly contribute to the fields above through the development of computational methods involving network science, basic mathematical modeling, and data integration. The team also has long standing experience in computational proteomics, i.e. algorithms to analyze mass spectrometry data.



Keywords: systems biology, network biology, bioinformatics, computational proteomics
