Dashwood, Rod Distinguished Professor and Director


Research integrates multiomic, genetic, epigenetic and immune approaches for precision oncology and immunoprevention. Epigenetic 'readers', 'writers' and 'erasers' are targeted that reversibly regulate immune players in the antigen-presentation pathway. Cell-based molecular mechanistic assays are combined with preclinical models coupled to polypectomy. Clinical specimens, spheroids and organoids from patients undergoing colectomy provide for human translation.
