Pathway driven prediction of mutation impact in cancer

Josh Stuart, from the Systems Biology Group of the University of California, Santa Cruz, USA, uses data-driven approaches to identify and characterize genetic networks, investigates how they've evolved, and then uses them to 
simulate and predict cellular behavior. His approach is to design computational models and algorithms that integrate highthroughput molecular biology datasets to predict cellular- and organism-level phenotypes. He particularly focuses on elucidating altered signalling pathways in cancer cells that initiate and drive tumorgenesis and is developing models to predict the impact of mutations in human tissue and a patient's response 
to treatment.
