Research description

Our studies have focused on assessing acquired chromosomal instability, telomere alterations, and epigenetic alterations that arise in healthy tissues following chemotherapy for breast cancer. We also focus on providing diagnostic cytogenetic and genome-wide copy number (as well as loss of heterozygosity) tests for a variety of solid tumors/leukemia/lymphoma, along with developing/optimizing new diagnostic tests.
