While many cells in our body are not actively dividing, we have a poor understanding of the biologically and medically important cellular state of quiescence. 


Our laboratory’s mission is to apply modern approaches drawn from molecular and cellular biology, genomics, biochemistry, computer science and systems biology, chemistry and medicine to gain an insight into the molecular basis of quiescence, and thereby cell cycle control and cancer.
