More About My Lab...
Through the CaNCURE program, I was placed in the Center for Systems Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital under the tutelage of Dr. Cesar Castro. Dr. Castro is the director of the Cancer Program within CSB, Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Attending Physician at the MGH Cancer Center. Dr. Castro has experience developing nanotechnology and molecular imaging platforms for ovarian cancer tumor detection and analysis. His current work focuses on novel profiling technologies to create true integrated readouts of RNA, DNA, and proteins within ovarian cancer samples all the way down to the single cell level.
The Center for Systems Biology is one of five thematic interdisciplinary centers at MGH. CSB includes over 200 researchers in 12 PI labs focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of complex human diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune disease. The most general mission statement of the center is "to analyze at a systems level how biological molecules, proteins and cells interact in both healthy and diseased states."
