Walter Ruzzo , PhD

Email: ruzzo@cs.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-6298

Dr. Ruzzo's research is focused on development of computational methods and tools applicable to practical problems in molecular biology, an increasingly data-rich discipline. Recent work has focused on analysis of high throughput sequencing data, such as chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIPseq) and transcriptomic (RNAseq) data, including development of new methods for mapping, assembly, bias correction, isoform quantitation, and motif discovery. New methods for finding noncoding RNA (ncRNA) genes are also being actively developed.

Brian Shirts , MD, PhD

Email: shirtsb@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 598-0557

Dr. Shirt's research focuses on integrating complex genetics knowledge into clinical care. There are several related aspects of this research: clinical classification of rare variants, particularly variants in familial cancer genes; improving the use of complex and multi-factorial clinical information, with special interest in personalized healthcare using genetic information; and storage and communication of genetic information in the health care setting (including formatting genetic test results so that they are searchable in clinical laboratory information systems and so that electronic health records can use genetics to provide active decision support).

Juila Sidorova , PhD

Email: julias@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-6585

Dr. Sidorova studies DNA replication in normal and cancer-derived human cells. She uses microfluidics assisted replication track analysis, or maRTA, a DNA fiber technology, to quantify genomic replication in vivo at the level of individual replication forks. Her lab’s specific interest is in the ways replication under stress generated by DNA damaging drugs or oncogenic mutations affects genomic stability and cell survival or promotes carcinogenesis.

Wei Wei , PhD

Email: wwei@systemsbiology.org

Phone: (206) 732-1221

The Wei group works in the highly cross-disciplinary field of BioMEMS, molecular and cellular analysis, and systems biomedicine. These joint efforts allow us to integrate single cell technologies with other biotechnological tools and computational approaches to investigate cutting-edge cancer biology questions with a balance between discovery and clinical translation. Specifically, we are interested in the following three areas: 1) Single-cell multi-omics tools and associated multivariate computational approaches for interrogating the heterogeneous tumor cells and immune cells at multiple bimolecular levels; 2) Epigenetic remodeling and signaling network dynamics associated with cell state transition and resistance development in epigenetically plastic tumors; 3) Liquid biopsy-based rare cell analysis for cancer metastasis and immunotherapy.
