Recruitment of First-Time, Tenure-Track Faculty Members
University of Toronto
February 17, 2016
Next-generation techniques for analyzing cancer genetics are revealing networks of interdependent genes that may allow researchers to find new vulnerabilities. Researchers hope to identify more possible drug targets to shut cancer down or keep it from metastasizing.
To analyze the complex biological data, bioinformaticist Traver Hart was recruited in 2016 from the University of Toronto, where he was a postdoctoral researcher, to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. With the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT, Hart returns to his home state, having grown up and studied in Texas.
