The Schnell lab investigates multiscale cellular physiology mechanisms.

The Schnell lab investigates multiscale cellular physiology mechanisms. We develop models for the analysis of biochemical reactions and biophysical processes. We used these models to investigate a variety of cell physiology problems. We are particularly interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic b-cells turnover and dysfunction in diabetes, the dynamics of metabolic pathways in cancer cells and the mechanisms of protein misfolding and aggregation in conformational diseases.
