Investigating the mechanisms of drug sensitivity and resistance to targeted therapies for lung cancer.
How do tumor cells evolve during treatment? Can we slow or halt the evolution of acquired drug resistance?
Are all cells within a tumor created equal? Why are some cells killed by therapy while other are able to survive?
Why do targeted therapies stop working? Can we develop new therapies to overcome drug resistance?
Can we combine orthogonal targeted therapy and immunotherapy approaches to better fight lung cancer?
Analysis of lorlatinib analogs reveals a roadmap for targeting diverse compound resistance mutations in ALK-positive lung cancer.
Our mission is to advance the development of new therapies for patients with lung cancer through scientific discovery of the molecular mechanisms of drug sensitivity and resistance, understanding tumor evolution during treatment, and identification of targetable vulnerabilities to guide investigation of novel therapeutic strategies.
We are a diverse group of physicians & scientists with expertise in cell biology, pharmacology, genetics, immunology and computational biology.Meet the Team
