Biography

Trained as a biochemist, Dr. Iyengar’s research focuses on cell signaling networks with emphasis on heterotrimeric G protein pathways. His laboratory uses a combination of experimental and computational approaches to understand the regulatory and information processing capabilities of cellular signaling networks. Among his research interest, he is mostly devoted to: Systems pharmacology and systems biology, computational cell biology, cellular signaling networks, spatial modeling of cell signaling, G-protein mediated intracellular signaling in neurons, and spatiotemporal organization of cellular networks. He has been awarded twice by the National Institute of Health (USA) and has been elected as part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Heart Association.
