Dr. Trey Ideker: Mapping the Circuitry of a Cancer Cell

Trey Ideker, Ph.D., a CSBC Investigator at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), is working to map the circuits of a cancer cell.

After training in electrical engineering, he found himself, like many other engineering and computer science graduates, working in the defense sector. However, according to Dr. Ideker, “the fact that I was facilitating mass destruction didn’t sit well on my conscience, so I knew that I needed to find a different career.”
