Lab Overview We seek to leverage modern genomic and genome-scale functional genetic technologies to dissect the molecular underpinnings and vulnerabilities of cancer. We have an interest in deep mechanistic study of the pathways that underlie cancer initiation, progression, and drug resistance in genitourinary cancers (especially cancers of the prostate and kidney).
Mission Our overarching mission is to make scientific discoveries that accelerate the development of life-extending treatments for patients with cancer, with a focus on those with genitourinary cancers. We aim to elucidate the drivers and vulnerabilities of genitourinary cancers by integrating genomic profiling of primary tissue specimens with functional approaches in in vitro and in vivo systems. We are a highly collaborative research group engaged in joint projects with scientists and clinicians of diverse expertise. In addition to basic and translational research output, we are also deeply committed to mentoring the next generation of physicians and scientists.
