SjD Laboratory


Welcome to the Cancer Genomics and Systems Biology Group! 

Our group, headed by Dr. Subhajyoti De at Rutgers Cancer Institute, develop and apply genomics, systems biology, and mathematical modeling approaches to understand the biology of cancer and use that knowledge for better diagnosis, stratification, and treatment of the disease. 

We are part of the Rutgers CINJ Precision Medicine Initiative and Center for Systems and Computational BiologyWe closely collaborate with several research groups on different aspects of basic and clinical cancer research. Please see our Research and Publications page for more details on the recent projects.

Members of our lab have diverse background, with training in computer science, mathematics, engineering, genomics, and molecular biology. Graduate students at Rutgers are encouraged to enquire about possibility of a rotation project. We have no current opening for postdoctoral positions but informal inquiries of open positions are very welcome. Please find our address on the Contact page.
