Research Abstract:

Our group focuses on translational cancer genomics. Specifically we are interested in analyzing and tracking cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as a method for detecting cancer relapse early, and identifying responses to cancer treatment sensitively. Members of my group focus on applying the Cancer Personalized Profiling by deep Sequencing (CAPP-Seq) method to detect molecular residual disease (MRD), and in methodological advances to apply ctDNA technology to more diverse clinical scenarios including early cancer detection. We are also interested in applying digital cytometric methods, including CIBERSORTx, to query composition of the tumor microenvironment from bulk RNA sequencing data. All of our research involves analysis of human clinical samples/data and clinical correlation with the goal of improving cancer patient outcomes.
