The focus of the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center is elimination of breast cancer as a major cause of mortality throughout the world. A major emphasis of our center is to better understand the genomic and biochemical landscape of breast cancer in order to identify specific genes and pathways that drive breast cancer development, aggressiveness, metastasis, and therapeutic resistance. In turn this work will directly lead to improved prevention and therapeutic strategies. This is a recruitment into Dr. Chonghui Cheng’s lab which strives to understand the fundamental questions of how RNA regulation controls cellular processes in normal biology and in the context of cancer. Working at the interface of RNA splicing and breast cancer biology, our current focus is on regulation of breast cancer metastasis driven by alternative splicing.
