Research Interest:
My research laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach involving genomics and bioinformatics along with cell culture and animal models to study recurrent chromosomal alterations, such as translocations and amplification, in cancer.
For our studies of recurrent chromosomal alterations, we currently focus on rhabdomyosarcoma, a family of myogenic soft tissue cancers usually occurring in children, in which we are investigating the genetic basis, biological consequences, and therapeutic implications of these chromosomal changes.
