DNA Damage and Host Response

The goal of the DNA Damage and Host Response program is to study molecular events of genomic instability and regulation involved in cancer. In particular, investigators are interested in genomic modifications involved in oncogenesis, resistance to therapy and long-term effects of cancer treatment.

The program has three general areas of research emphasis:

  • Identifying cancer relevant pathways involved in genomic instability and regulation
  • Defining molecular pathways leading to therapeutic resistance and tumor recurrence
  • Development of strategies to minimize side effects of cancer treatment
