Dr. Iyengar is a Dorothy H. and Lewis Rosenstiel Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Systems Therapeutics.

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, and how they affect cell and tissue physiology.

Research Interests:

Systems pharmacology and systems biology
Computational cell biology
Cellular signaling networks
Spatial modeling of cell signaling
G-protein mediated intracellular signaling in neurons
Spatiotemporal organization of cellular networks, and physiological outcomes
