Primary Academic Title:
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology, Division of Radiation and Cancer Biology, Washington University School of Medicine
Research Interest:
My long-term research focus is to develop protocols for effective radiation treatment of human cancer by establishing a detailed understanding of molecular recognition and function of p53 tumor suppressors in the processes of tumorigenesis. I am particularly interested in elucidating the involvement of mutant p53 in stress-response pathways. We aim to find a way of sensitizing cancer cells to irradiation or chemotherapy treatments, especially for cells carrying a mutation in p53 genes.
