Ralph Weissleder's Lab
My laboratory has currently three major areas of interest:
1) Quantitative single cell analysis of cancers during drug treatments in vivo (systems pharmacology);
2) Use of chemical biology and bioorthogonal chemistries to perturb and analyze protein networks to identify new drug targets;
3) Use of next-gen sensing technologies ("chips") for real-time analysis of human biology.
The lab uses a variety of tools and platforms for data acquisition. In general, we aim at obtaining:
Systems, wide global measurements
Integration of multiple, different data sets into models
Dynamic, serial measurements
