Cancer Research

Bringing large-scale cancer genomics—comparative genomics algorithms and infrastructure—to gain a mechanistic, molecular-level understanding of the etiology of disease and mechanisms of resistance to treatment. Also applying molecular biology and stem cell methods to develop cancer treatments and detection methods.
