Gene Networks in Cell Biology and Cellular Control Mechanisms   Participating Faculty
Another strong group in the Center focuses on development of gene networks and metabololic and interactomic networks and pathways using gene expression array, proteomics and interactomic technologies. Systems under investigation span networks involved in microbial pathogenesis, host response to microbial pathogens, mechanisms of oncogenesis including cell cycle control and apotosis, network in the neuroendocrine system, gene networks involved in substance dependency, and systems involved in cellular and organismal aging including longevity-gene network analysis. Sixteen Center faculty comprise this group, three of whom are very recent recruits.
