Paulsson Lab People

Department of Systems Biology
Harvard Medical School


The lab works on a mix of mathematical theory for fluctuations, experimental methods to count molecules, and various applications to central processes in the cell. The lab members correspondingly come from pure and applied mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, chemistry, molecular biology, microbiology and genetics. The group currently consists of 4 postdocs and 7 graduate students as well as several short- and long-term visitors at all career stages.
