DNA Replication, Stability and Repair

  DNA repair banner


Our research is defining the normal mechanisms of DNA replication and repair, with the aim of understanding how it is deregulated in cancer cells. We are investigating the impact of specific classes of gene mutations, such as ATM, BRCA1, and MYBL2 on genome integrity. We examine the impact that processes such as transcription and replication have on genome stability.
