Research in my laboratory is focused on the characterization of molecular genetic aberrations in human brain tumors. Techniques include genome-wide views of DNA, RNA and protein changes relevant to the clinical behavior of these neoplasms. Tumor tissue is used to identify aberrations and model systems are used to characterize functional consequences of these aberrations.

My laboratory would provide a student with exposure to the use of tumor specimens for molecular marker studies, including experience in histopathology and immunohistochemistry. Molecular genetic techniques, including PCR, real-time PCR cloning would be used, as well as tissue culture and gene transfection.
