Saeed Tavazoie

Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biophysics, and Systems Biology, Columbia University

Saeed Tavazoie is a systems biologist who was professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and the Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton before joining the faculty at Columbia University in 2011. Over the years, his laboratory has addressed fundamental challenges in decoding the regulatory genome and revealing how networks of interacting genes implement complex phenotypes. The long-term goal of his research is to achieve a predictive understanding of biological behavior in terms of the structural and dynamical properties of the underlying molecular networks.

Synthetic and Systems Biology: Reinventing the Code of Life

Saturday, May 11th
2:30 - 4:30PM

Past Event

Synthetic biology, and its sister field systems biology, offers the means to reengineer DNA in ways (and at a pace) that Nature, in her evolutionary wisdom, never envisioned. Standing at the unique crossroads of biology, engineering, computer science and neuroscience, these emerging fields are working toward the development of novel drugs and energy sources, the… read more »
