“I am interested in understanding the genetics and mechanisms behind cancer formation and progression, evolution and its consequences, signaling pathways involved in developmental biology, the cell cycle, and the immune system. I want to ask questions such as why host genetics can cause a certain infection to be worse or less severe, why some individuals may be more susceptible to certain cancers, what are new ways we can fight cancers and other diseases, or why the cell cycle and associated proteins function the way they do.”
