About the Lab

The long-term research goal of the Sirota Lab is to develop integrative computational methods and apply these approaches in the context of disease diagnostics and therapeutics. We are specifically interested in leveraging and integrating different types of omics and clinical data to better understand the role of the immune system in disease. We are developing computational methods and using them to understand immune tolerance in the context of autoimmune disease and non-response (pregnancy, organ transplant, cancer). The laboratory is funded by several National Institutes of Health including NIA, NLM, NIAMS, NICHD, Pfizer, March of Dimes and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.

The Sirota Lab is part of the Department of Pediatrics and the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute at UCSF.

We are located in UCSF Mission Bay at 490 Illinois St, Floor 2, San Francisco, CA.

Integrative Methods for Preterm Birth Research

Each year, 15 million babies (representing 10% of the world's births) are born preterm, defined as before the 37th week of gestation. Survival for most children born preterm has improved considerably, but surviving children remain at increased risk for a variety of serious complications, many of which contribute to lifelong challenges for individuals and their families, as well as to burdensome economic costs to society. The exact mechanism of spontaneous preterm birth is unknown, though a variety of social, environmental, and maternal factors have been implicated in its cause. We are in particular interested in applying computational integrative methods to investigate the role of the immune system in pregnancy (Cell Press Sneak Peak 2021) and elucidating genetic (Sci Rep 2018), transcriptomic (Front Immunol 2018), microbiome (Front Microbio 2020), environmental (Environ Health 2018), and clinical determinants of preterm birth. Moreover, through the March of Dimes (MOD) Database for Preterm Birth Research, we are leading efforts to organize scientific data and research across all MOD-funded Prematurity Research Centers with the goal of enhancing research collaboration and coordination to accelerate the overall pace of discovery in this field (Sci Data 2018). This work is funded by the National Library of Medicine at NIH, March of Dimes and The Burroughs Wellcome Fund.

Computational Approaches to Inform Therapeutics of Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a multifactorial neurodegenerative disorder caused by interactions among multiple genetic and environmental factors. Apolipoprotein (APO) E4 has been identified as the major genetic risk factor for AD. It increases the risk and lowers the age of onset of AD in a gene dose–dependent manner. The genetic complexity and multifactorial nature of AD pose unique challenges for developing effective therapies and suggest the need of a precision medicine approach that takes into account individual variability. The goal of this project is to use a multi-omics integrative approach leveraging publicly available human genomics and transcriptomics to elucidate sex-specific (bioRxiv 2020) and apoE genotype-specific (Research Square 2021) molecular pathways involved in AD with a focus towards neuroinflammation. We are further interested in seeing how these differences impact diagnostics and therapeutics (Trends Pharmacol Sci 2019).

Integrative Genomics for Autoimmune Disease

With the advent of genotyping and whole genome sequencing technologies, more and more omics data is becoming available for integrative analysis and provides an opportunity to ask new questions about disease. We are interested in leveraging the genetic data across phenotypes to elucidate the genetic architecture of disease with a special interest in autoimmune diseases (Plos Genetics 2009). Furthermore we are interested in leveraging and applying next-generation sequencing technologies in order to better understand the role of the immune system in disease (JCI 2012, STM 2014). We have on-going projects in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) (Nat Comms 2019, Comms Bio 2021), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) (bioRxiv 2020), and Dermatomyositis (ACR Open Rheum 2019). This work is currently funded by National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases at NIH and Pfizer.

Cancer Informatics

We are interested in using publicly available gene expression and genetics data to identify novel biomarkers and therapeutic strategies for cancer. We are actively working on developing computational approaches for target identification, therapeutic prediction and selection of validation models (CPT 2015, BMC Med Genomics 2015, PSB 2015). We have a special interest in studying the tumor microenvironment and the interaction of immune cells in the context of cancer (Nat Comms 2015) as well as evaluating cell lines as cancer models (Nat Comms 2019).

Computational Drug Discovery

The identification of novel disease indications for approved drugs, or drug repositioning, offers several advantages over traditional drug development. The traditional paradigm of drug discovery is generally regarded as protracted and costly, with studies showing that it takes approximately 15 years and over $1 billion to develop and bring a novel drug to market. The repositioning of drugs already approved for human use mitigates the costs and risks associated with early stages of drug development, and offers shorter routes to approval for therapeutic indications. We are interested in leveraging publicly available data to carry out data-driven computational drug repositioning. This methodology has been applied successfully to Crohn's disease and IBD (STM 2011, STM 2011), dermatomyositis (JID 2016), liver cancer (Nat Comms 2017), preterm birth (JCI Insight 2020), and most recently COVID-19 (bioRxiv 2020). This work is currently funded by the National Institue of Aging at NIH.
