Research Title:
Innovative genetic approaches to target MYC-driven cancer

Abstract:
Liver cancer is devastating, is prevalent worldwide, and is in desperate need of new strategies, as current therapies are inadequate. My team aims to discover new treatments for liver cancer using innovative genetic approaches. We bring together a useful and relevant platform for performing genetic screens in mouse livers, powerful molecular tools, and fresh ideas, to tackle a major deficiency in cancer therapy.
