Welcome to the Van Valen Lab

We are a new research group in the Department of Biology at the California Institute of Technology. Our goal is to understand how living systems and their respective viruses process information to understand both their internal state and the world around them.

To that end, our group leverages the latest advances in imaging, machine learning, and genomics to measure the interactions between viruses and their hosts (see Research).

We are grateful for active funding and support from the Division of Biology and Bioengineering at Caltech and Google.
