Every cell in our body constantly makes decisions based on exchange of information with its surroundings. For example, cells next to a wound will actively repair the tissue and then return to a resting state. Bad decisions, on the other hand, are the cause of many common diseases, such as auto-immune disorders.
My group seeks to understand the molecular foundations of the complex signaling networks within cells, with the goal to find new treatment options for inflammatory diseases and cancer.
