My work seeks a fundamental understanding of how stem cell regulatory networks process internal and external signals into cell-fate decisions. In the long term, I aim to construct synthetic human tissues directly from embryonic stem... Continue Reading

Engineering and manipulating microbial communities is a major aspiration of microbiome biology that remains out of reach because we lack quantitative, predictive laws for community ecology. Indeed, the very existence of such laws has long... Continue Reading

The Tang lab is interested in natural product biosynthesis and biocatalysis. In the natural product area, our group is interested in elucidating biosynthetic pathways of polyketides, nonribosomal peptides and related compounds. The goal is to... Continue Reading

Lim, Wendell

My research focuses on the design principles of molecular circuits that govern cell decision-making and responses. My lab has made contributions in understanding the molecular machinery of cell signaling and how molecular modules have been... Continue Reading

Cellular processes are orchestrated by a large number of biomolecules in a spatially and temporally coordinated manner within a tiny volume. To uncover the underlying organizational principles and their functional relevance, I take microscopy visualization... Continue Reading

Bhatia, Sangeeta N.

Human tissues are composed of mixtures of cells that cooperate in a healthy microenvironment to perform the necessary functions of that organ. In contrast, altered microenvironments are a hallmark of disease. While cell-specific processes such... Continue Reading
