Researchers from Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and other organizations have uncovered underlying metabolic changes that regulate how immune cells react to COVID-19. These findings are associated with COVID-19 severity and may predict patient survival. The work was published in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
Prior to joining ISB’s faculty, Dr. Wei Wei earned his Ph.D. from Caltech and served as a faculty member at UCLA Medical School. In this Q&A, Wei discusses his research career to date, how research might change over the next decade, and much more.
In a study published in PLOS BIOLOGY, researchers at Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) explain how they developed a new theory for predicting cell-fate decisions and demonstrate, for the first time, that cells indeed undergo a critical transition – or tipping point – when they commit to a particular lineage. Jan. 9, 2017 3 Bullets: ISB researchers developed a new theory that uses state-of-the-art single-cell technology to make predictions about…
