Personal profile

Research Interests

My laboratory studies the complex genetic and molecular mechanisms regulating cellular stress responses to identify potential new disease biomarkers and therapeutic targets. This includes identifying:

  • DNA damage response pathways that suppress cancer
  • Genes and mutations that influence radiotherapy and chemotherapy responses
  • How and why fasting alters cell health & cancer therapy effectiveness

We employ various complimentary model systems (yeast, flies, human cell culture and mice) and modern genetic, genomic, complex trait analysis, molecular biology, cell biology and CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing approaches.
