My lab studies the mechanisms that regulate eukaryotic gene expression, and the role of gene expression in cancer development. To pursue these interests we use transcription-based approaches and functional screens to identify new genes and regulatory pathways involved in cancer. These studies are intended to enhance our understanding of how normal cells become cancerous and reveal potential new targets for therapeutic intervention.
