The Functional Genomics Group focusses on the use of cutting-edge genomics technologies to investigate transcription factor function and de-regulation in cancer with a particular interest in the p53 family.
We believe that a better understanding of the genome-wide targets, mechanism of action and consequences of de-regulation of key transcription factors; will allow us to identify cancer specific dependencies, that represent “Achilles heels”, exploitable with novel treatment strategies to improve patient outcomes.
