Group member Dr. Rick Quax will visit the Yale University’s School of Medicine to work together with Smita Krishnaswamy and her team. Their goal is to combine Rick’s novel information-theoretic methods concerning causality and synergy together with the protein expression data from their various cutting-edge mass cytometry experiments. The research questions include the inference of causal links and the controllability of the entire network of proteins and to validate it using new, guided experiments.

Period: July-August.
