Dr. Mark Lemmon Brings Biochemistry Expertise to Cancer Systems Biology
Mark Lemmon, Ph.D., a CSBC Investigator at Yale University, is a biochemist who examines molecular mechanisms and integrated networks in cancer. In this interview, he discusses research collaborations, the application of systems approaches for cancer research, and emerging areas for cancer systems biology.
Dr. Andrea Bild Enjoys the Challenging Terrain of Cancer Systems Biology
CSBC Investigator Andrea Bild, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Division of Molecular Pharmacology at City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte, CA. She is an avid hiker who has trekked up mountains in Utah and Colorado to admire the beauty of nature. Similarly, as a scientist and cancer researcher, she has set out on a journey to understand the complex landscape of cancer.
Dr. Ellen Langer Differentiated from a Cell Biologist to an Expert in Tumor Heterogeneity
Ellen Langer, Ph.D., a CSBC junior investigator at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), trained as a cell biologist and studied cellular plasticity at Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Utah. This work led to her current studies examining breast cancer cell phenotypes using systems biology approaches.
Dr. Nathan Reticker-Flynn Follows the Beat of Biological Systems in Cancer
There are many similarities between science and music, including quantitative patterns within elaborate compositions. In this interview, Nathan discusses his views on systems biology and its application to understanding cancer metastasis and immunotherapy.
Dr. Scott R. Manalis Uses Physics and Engineering to Study Cancer Cells
Scott Manalis, Ph.D., a CSBC Investigator at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has always been interested in coming up with new types of measurements and ways to push the limits of quantitative approaches. His enthusiasm for using a wide range of analytical skills to solve complex problems led him to study Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Stanford University.
Dr. Christina Leslie: Solving Cancer Biology Questions with Computational Models
Christina Leslie, Ph.D., a CSBC investigator at Memorial Sloan Kettering, trained as a mathematician in differential geometry and Lie theory. However, after graduate school, she moved into computational biology and cancer research.
In this interview, she describes her career path, systems biology approaches, and her recent findings related to immune cell heterogeneity in cancer.
