Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type II (MEN2) is a cancer syndrome that results in an aggressive form of thyroid tumor. I am using genetics to identify how epigenetic mechanisms regulate oncogenic Ret (and other RTK) mediated transformation. I validate my findings using human cancer lines and patient tumor analysis. I am also using genetics to identify novel ways to inhibit cancer cell signaling and screening drug compounds to identify candidate therapeutic agents.
