Areas of Research Interest

The goal of my laboratory is to use a combined genomic and developmental approach to identify critical signaling nodes that drive malignant brain tumor growth and invasiveness. Also, The underlying hypothesis of the research is that abnormalities in processes that govern normal neural development contribute to malignant transformation and behavior. My laboratory therefore focuses on common signaling pathways in brain development and malignant brain tumors, with an emphasis on glioblastoma multiforme and medulloblastoma.
