"The group is currently working on modeling cellular biology and we are involved in identifying principles underlying the cell function in normal and pathological conditions. Our research applies to cellular communication and provides novel tools and concepts to analyze the transition from normal to pathological behaviors.

Mathematical and computational approach in cell biology is a new and emerging field. We devote our time in searching for basic concepts. For example, we are interested in the mechanisms leading to cell decision, how large is the cell response to a given stimuli ? how precise is the brain wired or how the cortex makes precise boundaries.
