Molecular Genomics (Mol G)

Precision medicine relies on understanding the genetic changes that cause cancer development and response to therapy. Cancer is most commonly a disease diagnosed in aging adults, with cancer onset in childhood considered rare. However, this means that it is even more important to investigate the genetic basis of children’s cancer. We are using Next Generation Sequencing and Functional Biology to understand the genetic contributions in the development of childhood cancers.
