The emergence of complex diseases resulting from abnormal cell-cell signaling and the spread of infectious diseases caused by pathogens are significant threats to humanity. Unraveling the dynamic mechanisms underlying cell-cell signaling and infectious disease spreading is crucial for effective disease prevention and treatment. As science and technology advance, the availability and diversity of observational and experimental data related to these biological processes continue to grow. In this thesis, we integrate multisource data with dynamic modeling to investigate the biological mechanisms of Notch signaling in biological development and to develop prevention and control strategies for infectious diseases.

PhD dissertations

Approximately one week after the defence, PhD dissertations by Leiden PhD students are available digitally through the Leiden Repository, that offers free access to these PhD dissertations. Please note that in some cases a dissertation may be under embargo temporarily and access to its full-text version will only be granted later.
