Welcome to the El-Samad lab at UCSF!

Our lab is interested in interdisciplinary research projects at the interface of biology, mathematics, dynamical systems, and control theory.

Our research group consists of an exciting mixture of mathematicians, engineers, and biologists who are developing knowledge in three main, but intersecting, directions. Specifically, we are pursuing the development of

  1. foundational mathematical toolkits for the computational investigation of various classes of biological networks,
  2. technologies that improve the resolution and quality of data necessary for these computational studies, and
  3. predictive mathematical models for important cellular behaviors.
