Research in the laboratory focuses on the discovery and characterization of novel cancer predisposing genes in humans, including both common and rare variants. We conduct studies to describe phenotype, penetrance, modifying effect, and clinical outcomes associated with germline genetic alterations in cancer patients and their families. In addition, our research focuses on the interpretation and clinical translation of results of massively parallel sequencing of germline genomes in cancer-prone kindreds.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
