Research Interests

Our lab’s primary clinical and research focus revolves around women with breast cancer. Specifically, we are interested in studying breast cancer subtype specific (luminal, basal) radiation response in human breast tumors. Our goa l is to use that information to design biologically based radiotherapy trials.

Research Highlights

  • Using genomic tools to investigate breast cancer radiation response
  • Finding targets for modulation of radiation sensitivity
  • Translating findings to clinical trials in order to improve patient care
