Professor of Medical Engineering and Science, and Physics Associate Member of the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT; and of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Institute for Medical Engineering and Science, MIT; and Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology
Herchel Smith Professor of Molecular Genetics Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology Director of FAS Center for Systems Biology
We use budding yeast in three different ways: 1) to experimentally evolve novel traits, such as multicellularity and circadian clocks, 2) to test our understanding of interesting biological traits by trying to engineer them, and 3) to dissect the regulation of cell biologically interesting processes like polarization, energy homeostasis, and the regulation of the cell cycle....

Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics and Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University
The Needleman laboratory investigates how the cooperative behaviors of molecules give rise to the architecture and dynamics of self-organizing subcellular structures.
Margaret M. Dyson Professor of Pediatric Oncology, Harvard Medical School Professor of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Our laboratory is interested in how cell cycle signals regulate chromosome segregation and polarized morphogenesis. Our experimental approaches include a combination of biochemical, genetic and live-cell imaging.
Alice and Rodman W. Moorhead III Professor of Neurobiology Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
The main focus of my research laboratory is to understand the development and regulation of synapses in the brain and the relationship of these processes to behavior and disease.... Read more about Bernardo L. Sabatini
Director of the CBio Center, Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Professor of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School
The overall goal of our work is to solve biological problems using quantitative methods from bioinformatics, statistical physics, data sciences, statistics, computer science, and mathematics. We apply these computational methods to build predictive network models of molecular and cell-cell interactions, to support cancer precision medicine, and to make discoveries in structural and evolutionary biology. ...
