1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. I am particularly interested in precision medicine for cancer patients. My current research is characterizing the effects of specific errors (called mutations) in DNA to ultimately determine if they affect the response of an individual cancer patient to therapy.  I’m integrating cell & molecular biology, genomics, and cancer models to keep improving options and outcomes for cancer patients. Some of my other interests include:

  • Normal and cancer-based splicing and gene regulation.
  • Examining molecular cross-talk between signaling pathways.
  • Exploring epigenetic regulation of genes throughout mammary development.
  • Optimizing models to mimic human cancers in vitro and in vivo.
