My long-term interests are to understand the mechanisms that contribute to the etiology of radiation-induced carcinogenesis. I have a career-long interest in understanding the repair of DNA double-strand breaks, the most damaging lesion induced by radiation. My work has focused on elucidating the proteins, pathways, and networks critical to the damage response. I’m also interested in better understanding individual differences in responses to damages as well as differences in cellular responses, particularly stem cells.
