Laboratory for Quantitative Signaling and Multi-scale Modeling

Welcome to the Linderman Group webpage!
We apply chemical engineering principles to the field of biology and medicine. Our research is focused on fundamental studies in cell biology and cellular signal transduction, which has a myriad of applications including drug discovery and tissue engineering.

Research Areas
A multi-scale and multi-system approach to understand granuloma formation in TB Models of receptor dynamics, signal transduction, and cell responses Agent-based modeling of chemotaxis, drug distribution, and vascularization in the tumor microenvironment
