    FABIAN RUDOLF, ETH ZURICH

    The Computational Systems Biology Group comprises biologists, computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians who perform interdisciplinary research in systems and synthetic biology. They focus on developing and applying computational methods and mechanistic mathematical models to study complex cellular networks, to elucidate their operating principles, and to enable their rational re-design. Their biological applications rely on the group’s experimental biology part that uses budding yeast as a model organism, and on various external collaborations.

    BARBARA ENGELHARDT, PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

    The Engelhardt Group develops statistical models and methods for high-dimensional genomic data. In particular, we study human genetic variation and its impact on genomic regulation, including gene expression and splicing, with the goal of identifying mechanisms of human disorders and diseases.

    NICOLE KING, UC BERKELEY

    The origin of animals represents one of the pivotal transitions in life’s history, and one of its greatest unsolved mysteries. While the fossil record remains silent regarding the rise of multicellularity, the genetic and developmental foundations of animal origins may be deduced from shared elements among extant animals and their protozoan relatives, the choanoflagellates. To better understand the origin and evolution of animals, Dr. King's lab is reconstructing the minimal genomic complexity of the unicellular progenitors of animals; elucidating the ancestral functions of genes required for animal development; and characterizing choanoflagellate cell and developmental biology.

    ANNA-KATERINA HADJANTONAKIS, MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER

    Cancer is a condition promoted by cells undergoing an identity crisis. An understanding of how cells control their identity (cell fate specification), and how they organize themselves into normal tissues (morphogenesis) provides the blueprint for the fundamental biological processes that become deregulated in cancer. The Hadjantonakis laboratory uses high-resolution quantitative methods to investigate the mechanisms underlying stem cell specification, cellular differentiation, tissue organization and growth. They use the mammalian embryo as a platform, and the mouse as a primary model system. They also exploit in vitro cultured stem cells, including pluripotent stem cells, for their studies.

    KENNETH YAMADA, NIH NIDCR

    Dr. Kenneth Yamada's group's overall research goals are to discover novel mechanisms and regulators of cell interactions with the extracellular matrix and their roles in craniofacial development and disease pathogenesis. They are focusing on mechanisms by which the extracellular matrix, integrins, Rho family GTPase signaling systems, and the cytoskeleton act in concert to mediate or regulate cell adhesion, migration, invasion, matrix remodeling, and tissue morphogenesis.

    SOPHIE HELAINE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

    Salmonella is the causative agent of various diseases, ranging from gastro-enteritis to typhoid fever. We have recently discovered that upon infection of host cells, there is a dramatic increase in the proportion of the Salmonella population that forms persisters. A family of genes, named Toxin/Antitoxin modules, is known to be involved in the formation of persisters in a non-pathogenic bacterial species, but almost nothing is known about these genes in pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella. The Helaine lab investigates their function, particularly in relation to persistence of Salmonellato antibiotics during infection. Understanding mechanisms of action of such genes could provide ways to prevent bacteria from becoming persisters, or force them out of that state so they become re-sensitised to antibiotics.
