Research Summary

The Villen lab is interested in the organization principles of signaling. We develop and apply proteomic technologies that provide a systems-level view of signaling to reveal signaling components, their connections, and their functional regulation. Our long-term goal is to understand the wiring diagram of a cell at such resolution that we can predict and control cellular output, encompassing molecules, shapes, and functions.
