Ralph Weissleder's Lab
The Lab has a unique operation. We have always focused on selecting ideas that would have the greatest positive impact for humanity (for some current projects see here). Our primary focus is to:
- Obtain a deeper understanding of human biology in health and disease
- Translate new biological understanding into clinically useful diagnostics
- Identify new therapeutic approaches and drug targets
- Quantitative in vivo measurements
- Systems-wide global measurements
- Dynamic, serial measurements
- An fine-grained understanding of in vivo function
Quantitating drug-target engagement in single cells in vitro and in vivo.
