Personal profile


Genome Stability Lab (GSL)

Research in the group aims to better understand how cells maintain stable genomes and how genomically instable cancers can be detected and targeted in novel ways. Specifically, we are working on two topics to improve strategies of preventing and treating diseases of unmet need in the future.

1. How do ubiquitylation pathways regulate the DNA damage response and associated processes? To address this, we are integrating cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and high through-put/high-content quantitative microscopy/microarray techniques. The importance of ubiquitylation and DNA damage response pathways is illustrated by a declining ubiquitin system and accumulating DNA damage giving rise to various human disorders such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

2. Ovarian cancer displays rampant genomic instability and has low long-term survival rates with less than 30 percent of women outliving the disease for more than ten years, mainly due to a lack of early detection methods. We are establishing cutting-edge nanotechnology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry and advanced microscopy methods to develop innovative biohybrid drug-delivery vehicles to detect and target the disease earlier.
