The Precision and Systems Biomedicine Laboratory aims to improve health outcomes by (1) developing better diagnostic tests for early detection of cancer, and (2) harnessing the power of omics technologies and computational systems biology methods to model molecular networks altered in disease and to predict therapeutic response.
The laboratory has a strong philosophy for inter-disciplinary collaboration, community and industry engagement to ensure translation of research outcomes.
