Our ultimate research goals are to understand key drivers of cancer and identify novel therapeutic drug combinations to prevent cancer development and chemotherapy resistance. To achieve these goals, our lab is using and developing genomic and epigenomic mapping, editing and imaging approaches to understand genome regulation in normal and malignant settings. We integrate experimental approaches with large-scale computational data analysis to verify our experimental observations and come up with new testable hypotheses.

Our laboratory is utilizing and also developing cutting-edge functional genomics strategies and developing novel CRISPR based manipulation tools to understand dynamic gene regulation and 3D genome organization in normal and malignant settings. These efforts are based on our previous expertise in genome-wide approaches, and development of novel technologies for cancer research. Our lab has developed particular experitse in utilizing and developing CRISPR based technologies.

Our lab is located on the 6th floor of Jordan Hall (Room 6228) and we are part of University of Virginia, School of Medicine, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.
