The focus of our lab is to identify the somatic genomic abnormalities that mediate cancer development or progression or influence how tumors respond to therapy. We are particularly focused on discovering abnormalities that lead to distinct clinical phenotypes and reveal mechanisms of molecular pathogenesis.
