Scientific summary

My work is focused on the interplay between cancer biology and therapeutics. It concerns the development of novel anticancer agents and combinations and their associated biomarkers based on a mechanistic understanding. This includes both DNA-targeted agents and drugs targeting oncogenic signaling pathways.
