Our genome is the foundation for life that must be guarded to avoid dysfunction and disease. We aim to understand how mammalian cells ensure genome stability. The ability to protect and maintain a stable genome is crucial to avoid numerous diseases including neurological disorders and cancer.
The overarching goal of my research is to understand mechanisms underlying maintenance of genome stability in mammalian cells, and how impairments of these mechanisms cause diseases such as cancer and neurological disorders. Based on this foundational understanding, we aim to find new targets mainly for cancer therapy as well as improve current therapies.
