Lab funded by an NSF CAREER Award!

The proposal, CAREER: Inference of gene regulatory networks and cell dynamics that control stem cell fate has been awarded by the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) Mathematical Biology program.

The research objectives of this award focus on developing new network inference methods and multiscale models of the dynamics of stem cells as they make cell fate decisions during differentiation.

The educational objectives of this award focus on training a new generation of scientists to be simultaneously literate in the mathematical and the life sciences. We will develop new curricula for elementary age and middle/high school age students in the local area around USC. We will take on the challenge of translating sophisticated topics (e.g. how & why we make mathematical models of cells) to young audiences. Updates on our progress will be posted in Outreach.
