H. Phillip KOEFFLER
The major focus of Prof Koeffler’s lab is identifying key DNA abnormalities in cancers and translating these findings into novel classifications and diagnoses. In addition, his team has begun looking for new therapeutic approaches based on the DNA changes that occur in these tumours. They have learned that not only do tumours have common unifying DNA changes, each have unique DNA changes. Therefore successful therapy will require the ability to survey rapidly the entire genome for alterations so that they can tailor therapy.
