Overview of the laboratory

Our research interests focus on identifying novel genes and pathways that are essential for MYC-related tumor transformation and progression, particularly for T-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma/Leukemia and Breast Cancer.  The research strategy of Dr. Feng’s laboratory is to combine the analysis of human cancer genomic databases with the genetic and imaging capacities of the zebrafish system. The long-term goal of the laboratory is to translate the basic research to the bedside, contributing to the joined forces of eradicating cancers.
