Welcome to the Dries Lab

We are a young and dynamic research group at BUMC in the department of Hematology and Medical Oncology and Computational Biomedicine. Using the latest advances in spatial and functional (single-cell) genomics, imaging and 3D tissue modeling we work at the interface of cancer biology, epigenetics and transcription. Our goal is to understand the transcriptional principles of cellular plasticity and its sources of variation in multicellular tissues in both health and disease. By generating experimental data and applying computational and statistical methods we aim to better understand - and intervene in - processes such as tumor formation and treatment resistance (see Research).

Do you have a passion for science and discovery? We are looking for (under) graduate students, Postdocs, Research technicians and a labmanager to join the team (more info) !

We are grateful for funding from the Hematology and Medical Oncology section at BUMC.

The lab received its first grant from MLSC to help combating COVID-19. Together with the labs of Dr. George Murphy and Dr. Christopher Andry we will develop an optimized large scale strategy to detect SARS-CoV-2 in the asymptomatic and underserved population.

07. May 2020

The lab will open its doors at the Boston University Medical Center in the departments of Hematology and Medical Oncology and Computational Biomedicine. We look forward to start fruitfull collaborations, publish exciting research, train the next generation of scientists and help the underserved communities in Massachusetts.
