The main goal of the Computational Biology Group is to develop computational models at different scales of biological organization, including cellular, tissue and organ level, to address challenges in stem cell research and disease modeling. Among these challenges, our research focuses on improving the regenerative capacity of stem cells in old tissues, identifying lineage-specifying transcription factors involved in organ-level developmental disorders, and modulating the dysregulated hyperinflammatory response associated to various infectious and autoimmune diseases. Moreover, our computational models employ methodologies from different areas of mathematics, engineering, and physics, and integrate multiple sources of biological information (e.g. transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics) to study biological processes at different levels of organization. Importantly, the development of these models aims at generating predictions to guide stem cell researchers in the design of novel regenerative medicine therapies, and to assist clinical researchers to design new therapeutic intervention strategies to revert disease phenotypes.
