Research Projects

The Ideker Laboratory seeks to create artificially intelligent models of cancer and other diseases for the translation of patient data to precision diagnosis and treatment. In doing so, we hope to address fundamental questions in systems biology and bioinformatics, including: What are the genetic and molecular networks that promote cancer? How can we best chart these? How do we use knowledge of these networks in intelligent systems for translation of genotype to phenotype?
