The genetic material in human cells breaks all the time, and nearly always, this damage is repaired before it causes further problems. But how that repair happens in normal cells, and how it goes awry and causes cancer, are questions that are not fully understood.

Now a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is using cutting-edge microscopy to investigate the inner workings of cells to study DNA repair in fine detail. Daniela Nicastro was recruited from Brandeis University, with the help of a CPRIT Rising Star Award, to join the department s of cell biology and biophysics.
