Jeremy Purvis is an Assistant Professor of Genetics and Cancer Cell Biology. His work is focused on signal transduction in single human cells, specifically interested in why genetically identical cells choose different fates and how these decisions are influenced by the cellular environment. His lab uses a variety of experimental and theoretical approaches including transcriptional profiling, time-lapse microscopy, and computational modeling. Like many basic research labs, they work under the fundamental assumption that if they gain a mechanistic understanding of how cells process molecular signals, they can apply this knowledge to design therapies for cancer and regenerative medicine.
