What are the goals of this project?

The aim of this project is to gain a better understanding of tumor heterogeneity in order to contribute to the design of future personalized medicine strategies. Specifically, I work on the integration of multiple types of genomic data derived from neuroblastoma patients to identify novel molecular groups and subsequently describe their specific genetic/epigenetic alterations and associated phenotypic effects.

What is the impact of this project?

Application of this knowledge can identify tumor vulnerabilities and opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
