About the Hao Lab

The Hao laboratory combines quantitative single-cell imaging, microfluidic technology and computational modeling to study how complex biological systems operate and function.

In particular, our current work focuses on:(1) encoding and decoding information in signal dynamics; (2) the logic and design principles of biological networks; and (3) metabolic control of cell signaling, gene regulation and aging.

We aim at building a research environment that enables a close coupling between experiment and theory and fosters the expansion of scientific expertise of each member in the laboratory.

Positions Available

    The laboratory currently has positions available for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

    We welcome applications from individuals with a solid background in biology, physics, or bioengineering, and a strong interest in developing a scientific career in quantitative systems biology.

    People with experience on mammalian cell culture are especially encouraged to apply.
