About DSA-Funded Research

The focus of the Chan laboratory is to understand the genomic basis of tumor development and treatment response. They use both large-scale genomic analyses and functional dissection to determine what drives oncogenesis. From this information, they seek to develop improved diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for human cancers.
