Cell Systems Science Group

The Cell Systems Science Group conducts research in measurements and models that support the understanding of complex biological phenomena at the cellular and subcellular level. The group focuses on the cell as a system and tools that can make measurements and characterize the system properties.

Projects/Programs

Fluorescence Microscope Benchmarking—We have made available a method to characterize a fluorescence microscope's performance by benchmarking the detection threshold, saturation and linear dynamic range to a physical artifact (i.e. a …

Assessing NP EHS—Due to their small size, nanoparticles can enter living organisms in previously unforeseen ways and their immense surface area results in higher reactivity compared to corresponding bulk materials. …

Cell-based Immunofluorescence Assays—Microscopy images of cells are often used in cell biology to qualitatively identify features of interest and to discern differences between treatments. Images are also sometimes used to quantify …

Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging of Cells and Extracellular Matrix Proteins—A critical challenge in cell biology is imaging and quantifying the interactions of cells with their extracellular matrix (ECM) environment, and the active remodeling by cells of their ECM. …

A novel root and rule-based natural language processing (NLP) approach to information indexing and searching—Whether at the level of the individual, team, project or program, research and engineering work must keep abreast of huge amounts of published information that might contain discoveries....
