Title: Keeping Up with Moving Targets in Cells and Science

 

Abstract: Many signaling molecules exhibit complex dynamical behaviors. Scientific goals are also not static, and often change as the result of new technologies and knowledge. In this talk I will share the main questions that my lab perused in the last decade related to the dynamics of p53, a critical tumor-suppressive protein that controls genomic integrity and cell survival. I will also present the new questions and puzzles that have emerged from our findings and some thoughts on what I see as the next goals of Systems Biology.
