Cancer stem cells are thought to drive the initiation, perpetuation, and chemoresistance of numerous cancers. My laboratory performs translational research that uses genomics, including pharmacogenomics and genome sequencing, to develop new ways of improving cancer treatment through the eradication of cancer stem cells. Leukemia is our primary disease emphasis. We aim to discover and modulate the genes and gene networks that drive cancer stem cell survival and its response to drugs. Our efforts are designed to help patients by:

  • Developing better drugs and drug combinations that target cancer stem cells.
  • Helping physicians decide what therapies are likely to be most effective in individual patients.
