Research Synopsis 

Alterations in gene regulation play a critical role in a wide range of human diseases. We are interested in the mechanisms that regulate gene expression in eukaryotes, and the role of gene expression in various human disease states, in particular cancer. To pursue these interests we use transcription-based approaches, functional screens (such as genome-wide loss-of-function RNAi- and CRISPR-based genetic screens) and proteomics methods to identify new genes, proteins and regulatory pathways that contribute to the disease state. These studies are intended to enhance our understanding of the molecular basis of disease and reveal potential new targets for therapeutic intervention.
