Our laboratory uses genomic technologies to identify abnormal gene regulation patterns in tumors and to analyze critical oncogenic pathways in several systems. Given that the mechanisms that drive pediatric tumors are poorly understood at present, we anticipate that our work will point to new therapies for these diseases.
