Pediatric solid tumors; sarcomas; genomics; and experimental therapeutics.Cr+LfCr+LfTranscriptional Regulation, Chromatin BiologyCr+LfCr+LfI have a longstanding interest in the relationship between transcriptional regulation and chromatin biology in order to understand fundamental mechanisms involved in pediatric cancers. Our lab employs genome-wide approaches to study transcription factor targeting, histone post-translational modifications and chromatin organization relationship in Ewing Sarcoma and Renal Cell Carcinoma. The lab uses both published computational algorithms, as well as novel computational approaches for discovery and hypothesis-driven exploration of genomic datasets. I serve as the primary attending for a limited number of children with solid tumors and as a resource for fellows seeking research lab opportunities and is the associate director of a newly funded postdoctoral T32 in Epigenetics and Chromatin Biology.
