James C. Schaff, B.S.Associate Professor, Department of Cell Biology
Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling
My research interests center on the development of abstractions, formalisms and numerical methods in biological modeling and simulatoin. I am the founding developer of the Virtual Cell project and currently lead our software development group.
We are also developing a suite of tools for the quantitative analysis of microscopy experiments which transparently leverage VCell technologies. The Virtual FRAP (VFRAP) tools is the first of these application, and facilitates the analysis of FRAP (Fluorescence Redistribution After Photobleaching) experiments.
I have been involved in the development of SBML from its inception and now serve as one of the SBML editors. Currently I am working toward the development of an SBML Level 3 extension for spatial modeling.
