We seek a global understanding of the molecular factors controlling cancer progression and anti-tumor immunity. Towards this end, we utilize a diverse set of modern tools including high-throughput screening, in vivo CRISPR genome editing, animal models, synthetic biology, and bioinformatics. Our goal is to uncover novel insights in cancer and develop them into the next generation of therapeutics.
