Our lab focuses on studying the biophysics and chemistry of heart and immune cells using computers. This means we use computer simulations and models to better understand the inner workings of these cells. Additionally, we do protein biochemistry and cell microscopy experiments in the wet lab to pair with our computational results. These experiments provide more concrete and tangible data that can be used to validate and refine our models. We collaborate extensively in the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology to further enhance our research. Overall, the goal of the lab is to deepen our understanding of how heart and immune cells function, which could ultimately lead to new treatments and therapies for related medical conditions.
