The goal of our laboratory is to improve the treatment of human cancer and to extend the lives of cancer patients, with a particular focus on lung cancer. Our approaches are cancer genomics and genome-inspired drug discovery. In addition, we seek to find infectious agents that cause hitherto mysterious human diseases.
As a principal investigator and mentor, my goals are to catalyze new fields of cancer research, and to mentor a new generation of cancer researchers.
