RESEARCH SUMMARY

Molecular Mechanisms of Cellular Dynamics through the Development and Application of Theoretical Approaches

The Dinner group develops theoretical models for relating cellular behavior to molecular properties.  We combine bioinformatics, image analysis, simulation of dynamics, and theory to understand signaling, gene regulation, and cytoskeletal mechanics in a variety of biological systems.  Please see the group webpage or the Chemistry webpage for details about our research program.
