We are reinventing the fundamental science underlying the development of new medicines and their use in individual patients.

The Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology (LSP) uses a team science approach to advance the fundamental science and technology needed to develop new medicines and personalized patient care.

We study the molecular causes of disease, how drugs exert their therapeutic and adverse effects, how clinical trials are designed and interpreted, and how machine learning and AI can help identify new molecular targets in diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, tuberculosis, and chronic pain. 


The LSP is a research and education program that is part of the Harvard Program in Therapeutic Science (HiTS). Our organization prepares students and fellows for leadership roles in academic research, industry, and government service.
