My long-term research goal is to better understand the cancer genome, and to leverage that understanding to better the delivery of chemotherapy. My immediate research goals include the discover of new synthetic lethal genetic relationships as a means to both repurpose already FDA approved drugs and also identify new chemotherapeutic drug targets.

I am also actively involved in several projects to identify genomic biomarkers to predict what specific patients will response to a given therapy. This research builds on my prior training in chemical biology and high-throughput screening, functional genomics and the creation of genetic interaction networks, as well as clinical oncology.
