Ralph Weissleder's Lab

Weissleder_research

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:

  • Quantitative measurements
  • Systems, wide global measurements
  • Integration of multiple, different data sets into models
  • Dynamic, serial measurements
  • Systems perturbations
