Molecular and Cellular Oncogenesis

The overall goal of the Molecular and Cellular Oncogenesis Program is to investigate fundamental questions in cancer biology, experimental therapeutics and drug resistance.

The highly collaborative program members use a variety of proteomic, genomic, metabolomic and systems biology approaches in their experimental design.  Researchers in this program have expertise in multiple cancer types, including ovarian cancer and melanoma, and they use combined cell biological, organoid, in silico and animal biology models to investigate key problems in cancer biology, detection, prognosis and therapy.
