Jen-Tsan Ashley Chi

Professor in Molecular Genetics and Mirobiology

Research Interests: We are using functional genomic approaches to investigate the nutrient signaling and stress adaptations of cancer cells when exposed to various nutrient deprivations and microenvironmental stress conditions. Recently, we focus on two areas. First, we are elucidating the genetic...

Anoop Patel

Associate Professor of Neurosurgery

Research Interests: My research lab focuses on using single-cell sequencing techniques to study intratumoral heterogeneity in malignant brain tumors. Intratumoral heterogeneity is the idea that individual cancer cells within a patient’s tumor are different and can respond differently to treatments...
