"It is an honor to be part of the Sontag family. The relationships I have developed and the funding I receive from the Foundation allows my lab to continue to advance our knowledge and understanding of brain tumors, resulting in better disease management for patients."
About DSA-Funded Research
The Suvà laboratory is focused on the biology of brain tumors, in particular diffuse gliomas in adults and children. They dissect how cellular heterogeneity and plasticity contribute to tumor properties. They study primary human samples at single-cell resolution and establish genetically and epigenetically relevant cellular models from patient tumors. They model how brain cancer cells exploit their plasticity to establish distinct epigenetic programs. They seek to identify common programs that would offer novel therapeutic options in these dismal diseases.
