The main goal of our research efforts is to provide breakthrough medicine for cancer patients; our projects are centered on functional understanding of molecular processes that modulate the response to cancer therapies. We employ state-of-the-art gain-of-function and loss-of-function experiments and genome and transcriptome sequencing as well as animal experiments to capture the cellular networks that modulate these processes. A focus of our work is to combine cutting-edge computational biology methods with innovative molecular cell biology methods. We aim to understand the dynamics of cellular signaling in the context of therapeutic efficacy of drugs that target specific cancer vulnerabilities. Our lab is currently growing to establish a rich cell biology, oncology, proteoics and genetics environment and make an impact on the development of novel cancer therapies.

We are looking for talented scientists driven by the desire to make a relevant contribution to the treatment of cancer patients by discovering significant findings in the lab.
