Research interests

My research interests are to develop integrative quantitative assays for elucidating the (i) mechanism of response to stress in 3D organotypic models and (ii) molecular basis of tumor heterogeneity. We are also developing molecular probes for cargo delivery and microbial profiling.

Awards received

Parvin's Lab, at LBNL, received an R&D100 award in 2014 for the development of BioSig3D. BioSig3D is the first system for high content screening of 3D cell culture models.
