Current Research and Scholarly Interests Statistical models and reasoning are key to our understanding of the genetic basis of human traits. Modern high-throughput technology presents us with new opportunities and challenges. We develop statistical approaches for high dimensional data in the attempt of improving our understanding of the molecular basis of health related traits.

Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Cancer Biology) and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in the links between the basic cell cycle machinery and the factors controlling self-renewal, differentiation, and regeneration. In particular, we are intrigued by the differences and the similarities between "normal" cells, cancer cells, and stem cells. We investigate the mechanisms by which normal cells become tumor cells, and we aim to understand the differences between the proliferative response in response to injury and the hyperproliferative phenotype of cancer cells.
