My lab focuses on precision medicine for children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer; in particular children with brain tumours. We combine approaches from population genomics, cancer genomics, and systems genetics to understand the genetic basis of cancer, the somatic evolution of cancer cells, and the mechanisms that drive genome and proteome instability in cancer. We further aim to improve the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic recommendations for brain cancer patients based on the development of novel computational approaches that integrate multiple layers of molecular information.
