Professor Walter Kolch studies how human systems function in harmony. He compares the body to an orchestra; disease occurs if one of billions of "players" is out of tune.
SBI scientists from different fields collaborate to study disease.
An SBI team studies cell response to dropping oxygen levels. Results may be used to develop new therapies for cancer and chronic inflammation.
SBI biologists work with mathematicians and computer scientists to study the cell as a whole.
A bioinformatics expert uses computer science to analyze biological data. SBI scientists will apply findings to new therapies and personalized medicine.
The research field provides a new perspective on health. Kolch also enjoys interdisciplinary teamwork.
