*I will be starting my lab at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago in April 2015. My affiliation will be with the Department of Pharmacology and Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.
My primary research interest is in understanding (1) the mechanisms of tumor maintenance and (2) how to induce apoptosis selectively in tumors driven by the complex oncogenic networks by taking advantage of a wide range of experimental model systems with my particular interest in breast cancers. My research projects combine cell-based loss-of-function/gain-of-function screens, cell biological and bioinformatics approaches, combined with animal models to identify novel treatment strategies and test them in early stage clinical studies.
