Christopher Plaisier’s laboratory focuses on constructing gene regulatory networks from patient data that can be used to discover diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers as well as novel drug targets. To accomplish this they integrate genetic, transcriptional, functional and clinical data together into one comprehensive gene regulatory network. They then design and conduct experiments which validate the predictions from these gene regulatory networks using in vitro cell culture models.
