Amy Paguirigan , PhD

Email: apaguiri@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-4352

The focus of my research has been the integration of emerging technologies to address clinically relevant questions in cancer biology. My focus is on the interface between clinical molecular biology, bioinformatics and biotechnology, in aiming to bridge the gaps to bring novel approaches in both the biotechnological and informatics realms to clinical molecular biology to study the role of clonal diversity in cancer therapy.

Steve Perlmutter , PhD

Email: perl@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 616-8520

Dr. Perlmutter's research work is relevant to clinical issues of motor impairment and recovery of function following central nervous system damage. Abnormal patterns of muscle activation following brain and spinal cord injury contribute to weakness and loss of coordination. His research will advance the understanding of the capacity for adaptation, and suggest ways to exploit this potential for improved function.

Hong Qian , PhD

Email: qian@amath.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-2584

Dr. Qian's main research interest is the mathematical approach to and physical understanding of biological systems, especially in terms of stochastic mathematics and nonequilibrium statistical physics. In recent years, he has been particularly interested in a nonlinear, stochastic, open system approach to cellular dynamics. Similar population dynamic approach can be applied to other complex systems and processes, such as those in ecology, infection epidemics, and economics. He believes his recent work on the statistical thermodynamic laws of general Markov processes can have applications in economic dynamics and theory of values.

Daniel Raftery , PhD

Email: draftery@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 543-9709

Dr. Raftery is an expert in the field of metabolomics, the study of small molecules involved in the metabolism of biological systems, cells, animals and humans. His research focuses on the development of advanced analytical tools and statistical methodologies for profiling metabolites in complex biological samples. He has applied these analytic approaches and demonstrated their utility for early detection of several types of cancer, as well as their utility in researching diabetes and heart disease.

Timothy Randolph , PhD

Email: trandolp@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-1079

Dr. Randolph's current research focuses on processing, classification and analysis of high-dimensional and/or functional data output from protein mass spectrometry, genetic assays and a variety of spectroscopies and imaging modalities. His other interests include methods for the analysis of networks used to describe gene and/or protein interactions.

Wendy Raskind , MD, PhD

Email: wendyrun@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-3177

Dr. Raskind's current research seeks to identify and study genes responsible for neurobehavioral disorders. Her lab investigates a variety of Mendelian neurogenetic disorders, including spastic paraplegia, movement disorders, and ataxias, in a large family set collected over more than 3 decades. Raskind's team uses multiple gene localization techniques combined with exome sequencing and bioinformatics to identify candidate genes responsible for the disease. In addition, the Raskind Lab study the genetics of dyslexia and familial Alzheimers disease. They are using a combination of linkage analysis and genomic sequencing to identify genes that contribute to the risk of developing these common and heterogeneous disorders.

Nina Salama , PhD

Email: nsalama@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-1540

Dr. Salama's lab is interested in the mechanisms by which this bacterium can establish and maintain a chronic infection in the unusual environment of the human stomach and the molecular cross talk between the host and the bacteria during the decades long infection. The activation of host cell processes, either through direct action of bacterial products or as part of the host's attempt to contain the infection presumably causes the different diseases associated with H. pylori infection. To approach this complex problem, the lab is using both global and molecular approaches.
