Dr. Schnell investigates physiological systems comprising many interacting components, where modeling and theory may aid the identification of the key mechanisms underlying the behavior of the systems as a whole. Dr. Schnell's lab is particularly interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic beta-cells turnover and dysfunction in diabetes, the dynamics of metabolic pathways in cancer cells and the mechanisms of protein misfolding and aggregation in conformational diseases.
