Welcome to the William Old Lab!


The Old laboratory develops and utilizes advanced methods in mass spectrometry to study signaling networks that regulate cell growth, communication and migration in multicellular organisms, and to better understand how these networks become dysregulated and drive cancer.  Specifically, he uses biological mass spectrometry to study complex biological systems, with an emphasis on the role of metabolic and signaling networks in human disease. His lab is developing methods to map and integrate multi-omic datasets rapidly determine the mechanism by which drugs and genetic perturbations affect cellular behavior.
