Understanding immune cell fate control circuits
Faculty Contact Information
We seek to understand the molecular circuitry controlling cell fate decisions in immune system development and function. To do so, we define their architecture using cutting-edge genomics and genome engineering techniques; elucidate their dynamics in single cells using quantitative live imaging and mathematical modeling; and reprogram their behaviors using synthetic biology methods. Through this work, we lay foundations for engineering these cells as next-generation therapeutic agents against cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
I seek to enable my students to uncover their full potential as a scientists and human beings. As a mentor, I nurture my students to help them identify passions and talents, cultivate independent thought and navigate uncertainty in the process of doing research. I embrace diversity in the lab, and seek to create a safe and welcoming environment where people of diverse backgrounds are heard and supported.
