Our lab at UCSF investigates cellular decision processes and the origins and impact of cellular heterogeneity in disease. Exciting new research projects include understanding how neural networks assemble in fly eye wiring, how cells integrate multiple environmental cues to maintain tissue homeostasis, and how drug resistance emerges and evolves in cancer. Our investigations seek to identify fundamental and human-understandable design principles underlying the behaviors of complex biological systems.
