Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Biochemistry
M.D. and Ph.D. in Chemistry (Stanford University)
The Ferrell Lab is studying several biological processes, including cell cycle regulation, apoptosis, and cellular organization. We draw upon a combination of quantitative experimental approaches, computational modeling, and the theory of nonlinear dynamics. Our goal is to understand the circuits that allow cells to make reliable decisions, and how these decisions propagate in both space and time.
