The Weinberger Lab is always open to collaborative projects with interested laboratories. We have established expertise in quantitative and synthetic analyses of cell-fate circuits in viruses and other systems. The lab's particular strengths lay in:
- Quantitative time-lapse microscopy (of gene expression and of viral infections)
- Construction and design of synthetic fate-selection circuits
- Design of novel cell-based therapeutic screens
- Modeling & simulation of infection dynamics across multiple scales (single cell, patient, and epidemiological scales)
- Viral latency & evolution
Below are some examples of our most recent collaborations and publications with other investigators.
