About the Ideker Lab

Our goal is to develop a new type of medicine based on knowledge of the complete physical and functional wiring of the cell. ​We are developing new ways of mapping these wiring diagrams directly from genome-scale measurements (genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic) and for using these maps to translate the increasingly complex data gathered from patients to predict disease outcomes and develop better treatments.
