Research Interests

Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. The genetic basis of cancer has been established and it is known that tumor progression is related to the accumulation of genetic mutations. These tumor specific mutations comprise the genetic profile of and individual’s cancer. The objective of my project is to look for ways to exploit these tumor specific genetic mutations for therapeutic benefit.
