    Collapse Overview
    Our laboratory is interested in understanding how the complex gene regulatory networks in mammalian cells control cellular proliferation and differentiation. The research is divided into two general areas: 1) the development of genomics and bioinformatics tools that allow genome wide identification of regulatory targets for transcription factors; and, 2) the application of these tools to the study of transcription factors that play critical roles in cancer.

    Research Focus Areas:

  • Genetics and Genomics

  • Gene Expression and Regulation

  • Signal Transduction
