The Simin lab is interested in genetic pathways that, when perturbed, increase cancer malignancy. The research involves bioinformatics along with molecular and cell biology techniques to engineer cell lines and mouse models that faithfully mimic human cancer evolution. With a greater understanding of the molecular basis of cancer progression we hope to identify potential new treatment avenues.
