Research area: DNA repair, cancer

Research Overview: My laboratory studies DNA repair. Nucleotide modification plays a critical role in many biological processes directly associated with cancer. Presently we are focusing on the DNA repair reaction targeted to alkylated DNA in relation to cancer. We use biochemical, molecular and genetic approach and exploit budding yeast as well as mammalian cell culture systems. We also translate research outputs and develop clinical diagnostic reagents and tools aiming at the early detection of cancer.
