Hi, I am Xianrui Cheng (程显睿), currently a postdoc in the Ferrell lab at Stanford University.
My general research interest is to understand systems-level organizing logic of fundamental biological processes. I combine mathematical modeling and experiments to uncover mechanisms underlying the spatial organization of the cell and signal transmission within the cytoplasm. Check out my past and current projects on the research page.
I graduated from the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics PhD program at Duke University. I was affiliated with the Duke Center for Systems Biology. As a graduate student, I was co-mentored by Professor Joshua Socolar from Duke Physics Department and Professor David McClay from Duke Biology Department.
