The Jorge Reis-Filho Lab

The focus of my laboratory is on the identification of the drivers of special histological types of breast cancer, rare forms of the disease that together account for up to 25 percent of all invasive breast cancers, using a combination of massively parallel sequencing and functional genomics approaches. These rare forms of breast cancer have been shown to be less transcriptomically and genomically heterogeneous than the common type of the disease, the so-called invasive ductal carcinomas.
