About the Lab:

The goal of the research in the Raj lab is to develop a quantitative picture of cellular function at the single cell level. They combine quantitative tools, molecular biology, and mathematical modeling to arrive at a quantitative understanding of how processes such as transcription and gene expression work. Dr. Raj’s lab has developed methods for measuring individual RNA molecules in single cells, and have recently developed methods to visualize individual base differences on single RNA molecules by microscopy. Dr. Raj can provide training in the following broad areas that are associated with dermatology, including systems biology and gene regulation, genomics, epigenetics, and single cell analysis in cancer.

Training Information:

Dr. Raj has trained 5 predoctoral and 2 postdoctoral fellows.
