Pathways/processes: Signaling pathways, genetics, epigenetic regulation of transcription circuits, disease modeling
Approaches: Gene editing, pathway mapping, RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, ChIP-seq, mouse models
Diseases: Adult and pediatric brain cancers

The primary focus of our research is to determine mechanisms that drive initiation and progression of adult and pediatric brain cancers. Our overarching goal is to molecularly understand the formation of these tumors and target vulnerabilities revealed through genetic, epigenetic and pathway analyses and disease modeling.
