Professor Wells uses systems-wide technologies to interrogate cellular differentiation and activation in the context of inflammatory disease. Professor Wells has built innovative bioinformatic and cell biology approaches to understanding cellular phenotypes from large-scale genetic and transcriptome datasets. She has developed significant international collaborations to drive cross-disciplinary research in stem cell biology, inflammation and neurological disease. The group works across methods in genome biology, bioinformatics, as well as cell and molecular biology. The Wells group has an active gene discovery program in macrophages, and are building new bioinformatic tools for the analysis of genetic networks.
