Advances in sequencing and genomics technologies have enabled new opportunities to address gaps in cancer diagnostics. Our lab is focused on novel molecular and computational genomics approaches to improve early detection and disease monitoring for patients with cancer, particularly by analyzing nucleic acids in body fluids like plasma and urine. We and others have shown that these “liquid biopsies” carry variable fractions of tumor-derived and tumor-associated nucleic acids across cancer stages. Our research program is developing new blood and urine tests that can enable precise and individualized treatment strategies.
