Research Summary

The goal of the Berger laboratory is to enable precision medicine by systematically uncovering the molecular alterations in cancer, determining the function of these variant alleles, and understanding how these alleles modulate response to targeted or immune-based therapies. We combine functional genomics, computational biology, biochemistry, and genetics to understand the mechanism of somatic cancer variants. Our goal is to identify drug targets and biomarkers and to translate this knowledge into clinical benefit for patients.
