Research Statement:

We use functional genomic and epigenomic tools to investigate how normal cells are turned into brain tumours. In addition, we use the genomic analyses results to create new animal models of medulloblastoma and ependymoma so that novel targeted therapies can be developed. This multi-layered approach allows for rapid clinically-important changes to brain tumour therapy, such that the quality of life of patients can be drastically improved.
