My research aims to understand how DNA damage is repaired in eukaryotic cells. Loss of efficient DNA damage repair causes accumulation of mutations which is a hallmark of cancer cells. I am using yeast for these studies which is a great eukaryotic model system.
Areas of Expertise
  • DNA Damage and Repair
