Omer Karin is a PhD student Azrieli Institute for Systems Biology at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Omer studies design principles of cellular tissue communication circuits. His research seeks to uncover the logic behind the decisions cells make, and why this decision-making fails in disease. To do so, he uses computational and mathematical models based on stochastic system theory, population genetics, and control theory, and collaborates with experimentalists to test the predictions of these models. Omer's projects aim to create a quantitative framework that will help understand cellular functional processes in health and disease.
