Disease prevention is a major part of our mission. We do genotyping using DNA analysis, including polymerase chain reactions and sequencing in order to identify established risk genes and new genes associated with characteristics of the disease. We also provide genetic counseling to patients with a history of the disease in successive generations.
Our research can be used to create personalized treatments for patients. We use gene expression analysis techniques, including RNA analysis with microarrays and quantitative polymerase chain reactions to identify differentially expressed genes between normal and tumor tissue. This information helps us identify individual aberrant pathways. Different tumors have different aberrations in signaling and the growth stimulation pathways that drive cancer growth are also different.

Breast Cancer | AIDS | Hepatitis | Melanoma | Multiple Sclerosis | Mycobacterium Avium Infection | Prostate Cancer
