Matthew L. Hemming, MD, PhD

Research Focus - Using Basic and Translational Research Tools to Identify Oncogenetic Mechanisms, Biomarkers and Therapies for Sarcoma

  • Using broad profiling and functional genomics approaches to understand oncogenic mechanisms in diverse sarcoma subtypes.
  • Establishing mechanisms of epigenetic regulation in gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and their influence on treatment efficacy and clinical outcomes.
  • Identifying molecular subtypes and therapeutic vulnerabilities in leiomyosarcoma.
  • Characterizing the functions of oncogenic fusion proteins in translocation-associated sarcomas.
  • Using insights from mechanistic studies to develop strategies for novel targeted therapies and clinical trials for sarcoma patients.
