Current areas of research in the Sander group include identification of oncogenically altered pathways from genomic and molecular profiling in cancer, algorithms for the analysis of cancer genomics data, design of combinatorial cancer therapy, drug target identification, knowledge representation of biological pathways, protein evolution, specificity in protein networks, and the function of small RNAs.
