Absence of an embryonic stem cell DNA methylation signature in human cancer.
Tracing human stem cell lineage during development using DNA methylation.
"Using epidemiological and bioinformatic methods to investigate the connections between etiological exposure, genetic and epigenetic modifications and diseases outcomes to better understand the underlying molecular mechanisms of disease, specifically epigenetics in cancer. The development of biomarkers at the molecular level that could be useful for diagnostic, prognostic, or treatment purposes in the future is of my interest."
RESEARCHER I ADMIRE
