Research Interest

I have a strong interest in understanding the gynecological cancer biology and identifying novel therapeutic targets and strategies for gynecological cancer. Currently I am focusing utilizing the latest molecular and cellular biology techniques as well as various model systems to investigate how genetic abnormalities drive oncogenesis and discovering vulnerabilities of gynecologic cancers with mutations in the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex. I am also interested in applying functional genomics in uncovering drug resistance mechanisms and novel targets in refractory gynecologic cancers.
