Studying How Cellular Identity Contributes to Cancer Progression

The Snyder Lab's overall goal is to determine how the loss of cellular identity and acquisition of alternative differentiation states contributes to cancer progression and alters therapeutic response. Ongoing projects are focused on two major themes:  

  1. Regulation of cellular identity in lung and pancreatic cancer.  
  2. Impact of changes in cellular identity on oncogenic signaling and response to targeted therapies.
