The Gynecology Research Laboratory is a disease-focused laboratory investigating the molecular biology of ovarian and uterine cancers for the purpose of improving prevention and control of these diseases. We are particularly interested in advancing opportunities for individualized and accurate therapy for women with gynecologic malignancies through integrated and functional genomic approaches. Our goal is to create new knowledge that will translate into clinical utility to improve the standard of care for ovarian and endometrial carcinoma. Our main areas of interest are novel biomarkers, precision medicine, and rare tumor research. We use various models systems and human tissues to study attractive biologic processes. The laboratory has a strong emphasis on translational research and believes that major breakthroughs are most likely to occur when basic scientists and clinicians collaborate to create new paradigms for cancer prevention and therapy.
