Biography

Dr. Ganem’s laboratory uses a combination of high-resolution microscopy, genome-wide RNAi screening, cell biology, and bioinformatics to study the causes and consequences of genome instability in human cancer. Dr. Ganem’s lab seeks to define the tumor suppression mechanisms that limit the proliferation of highly abnormal aneuploid cells, as well as to identify the common genetic adaptations made by cancer cells to overcome these growth barriers.
