Welcome to the Raj Laboratory

Our lab is interested in building a quantitative understanding of cellular function. We like to develop new tools for quantifying biological processes based on imaging and sequencing and then use those techniques to help us answer questions in molecular and cellular biology.

We aim to foster a richly interdisciplinary research environment in which biologists, chemists, engineers, clinicians, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians can work together to solve exciting problems. Just usually not all at the same time. Contact me if you are interested in joining the lab.

Some recent topics of interest include:

  • Biology
  • Science

Also, check out our lab blog, which is a bit more up to date with the latest from the lab (scientific and otherwise).

If you are interested in getting started with single molecule RNA FISH yourself, check out this website. It has a lot of information and answers to many common questions.

If you want to count your spots, use this software. It is easy to use and gives good results.

Our work is funded by generous support from the NIH, CZI and NSF.
