Our mission is to prevent disease, advance treatment, and increase patient survival. To this end, we pursue a broad-based methodological approach to elucidate the fundamental and clinical implications of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA mutations in the pathogenesis of cancer and age-related disease.
The majority of our projects set out to address long-standing intractable questions in mutation research, which have remained unanswered, largely due to technical limitations. Thus, our first step toward their resolution typically involves the development of new methods and technologies.
