Research focus

The ultimate goal of my research is to infer the mechanisms that lead to cancer progression using computational methods and biological profiles of patients. By inferring the regulatory mechanisms of genes in individual patients, we can identify novel transcriptional oncogenic interactions. Finding compounds to target this specific interaction is key to developing a cure for that patients disease.
