Welcome to the Schnell Lab at the University of Michigan Medical School. Our research focuses on two broad areas: (i) biometrology: the development of standard-methods to obtain high quality measurements in the biomedical sciences, and (ii) mathematical biology: the development of mathematical models of complex biomedical systems with the goal of identifying the key mechanisms underlying the behavior of the system as a whole.
The Principal Investigator, Santiago Schnell, DPhil (Oxon), FRSC, is the interim chair of the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology at the University of Michigan Medical School. He is also the John A. Jacquez Collegiate Professor of Physiology, and Professor of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics. He is also a William K. Brehm Investigator at the Brehm Center for Diabetes Research.
Dr. Schnell is currently serving as Editor-in-Chief of Mathematical Biosciences. He has served in a number of leadership positions at the University of Michigan, the USA, and internationally. He has received numerous national and international awards for his research, service and teaching contributions. For more details, you can read a short bibliography or his vitae.
