Systems biology seeks to simulate real cellular dynamics by focusing on these pathway interactions. With the systems biology approach, I seek to create a platform for discovering novel drug targets and drug combinations for a disease. My ultimate goal is to use this platform to cure long-unresolved diseases such as cancer and aging.

We have long believed aging is inevitable, but it may not. All living organisms are constructed based on what is written on the genome, and grow old as a ball rolling along a slope. I believe controlling this slope, which is genomic landscape, can cure aging. I'm exploring it with computing, network control theory, and cell experiments.

Like an elephant, by observing a small part of biological phenomena, it can be easily misunderstood. So, to conquer complex diseases such as aging and cancer, it is necessary to understand their emergent characteristics through a holistic approach. Especially, an approach using modeling can not only explain biological system but also predict how they will change to external stimuli. My research goal is creating the computational model for a biological system and finding master regulator which can reverse aged or cancer cell to normal health state.
