Emili Collaboratory for Network Systems Biology
The ‘Collaboratory for Network Systems Biology’ at the Knight Cancer Institute (KCI) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), led by Professor Andrew Emili, supports ambitious research initiatives aimed at mapping macromolecular interactions crucial to human health and disease, most notably cancer.
Dynamic physical and functional interactions occur among the diverse array of cellular biomolecules, and their systematic discovery is key to advancing fundamental mechanistic understanding of complex biological processes and their relationship to human pathobiology.
The CNSB serves as a central hub from which to chart dynamic molecular networks – an important emerging focus area at the KCI and OHSU. CNSB provides essential interdisciplinary knowledge, access to advanced instrumentation, as well as the technical prowess to get to the heart of network biology.
