Research Interests

Research in my laboratory focuses on functional analysis of Fanconi anemia gene products. The major research focus includes identification of new FA genes and signal transduction pathways that regulate DNA damage induced activation of the FA-core complex. Important technologies include biochemical purification of multiprotein complexes from human cell extracts, immunoprecipitation, RNAi, and biochemical assays. My long-term research goal is to use Fanconi anemia as a model system to study some of the important fundamental questions of cancer biology in general.
