What we do

The Computational Systems Oncology lab integrates algorithmic design, numerical modelling, and molecular biology approaches to address relevant questions in cancer biology and therapeutics. We explore single and combinations of genetic and epigenetic alterations that emerge and are selected during cancer evolution, to understand cancer driving mechanisms and inform precision medicine approaches.
