Regulation of epithelial growth in cancer and inflammation


Postdoctoral Fellow:  The Rockefeller University & Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Ph.D.:  University of Vienna
M.Sc.: New York University; University of Vienna

Fields of Interest:

  • Functional Genomics & Proteomics
  • Genetic Models of Development & Disease


Research Interests:

Our goal is to find novel therapies to combat the most devastating malignancies. We therefore developed direct in vivo gene-editing tools to integrate human cancer genomics and mouse modeling to simultaneously interrogate the tumorigenic and metastatic capabilities of hundreds of putative cancer genes and systematically screen for genotype-specific cancer vulnerabilities.
