Dr. Kai Tan Uses Systems Biology to Identify Targets for Combination Therapies

Kai Tan, Ph.D., a CSBC investigator at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, has always been fascinated by things that are complicated. This led him from graduate studies of genetic networks in bacteria to his current work using systems approaches to understand complex biological interactions during development and disease.  

In this interview, Dr. Tan shares his views on systems biology, his advice for students and trainees, and his CSBC research to identify targets for combination therapy based on gene regulatory networks in a high-risk pediatric cancer.
