Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We investigate the mechanisms by which normal cells become tumor cells, and we combine genetics, genomics, and proteomics approaches to investigate the differences between the proliferative response in response to injury and the hyperproliferative phenotype of cancer cells and to identify novel therapeutic targets in cancer cells.
Kathleen M. Sakamoto
Shelagh Galligan Professor in the School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the molecular pathways that regulate normal and aberrant blood cell development, including acute leukemia and bone marrow failure syndromes. We are also studying novel drugs for treatment of cancer.
Endowed Professor of Pediatric Cancer
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses primarily on the management of children, adolescents, and young adults with soft tissue sarcomas. I also have an interest in developmental therapeutics and late effects of cancer therapy,
Eric Alejandro Sweet-Cordero
Associate Professor (Research) of Pediatrics (Cancer Biology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is devoted to the analysis of pathways involved in the initiation, progression, and maintenance of cancer. Utilizing the mouse as a model system, we strive to understand aberrant oncogenic signaling, the role of the tumor microenvironment and the mechanisms involved in chemotherapy response and resistance at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels.
