The Reznik Lab studies metabolic and mitochondrial dysfunction in cancer through analysis of multimodal genetic, metabolomic, and clinical data. We use computational tools to address a basic question: how do tumors adapt their metabolism, the process by which they obtain energy and nutrition from the extracellular environment, to sustain malignancy? Our research draws on data from basic science and clinical practice to understand how metabolic adaptations confer selective advantages to tumors, serve as biomarkers of response and resistance to therapy, and poise tumors for effective targeted intervention.

The lab’s research is equal parts machine learning, data science, and bioinformatics, and is conducted by a multidisciplinary group of quantitative scientists and translationally-minded physicians. We study metabolism in many disease contexts, but also have a unique translational focus on kidney cancer.
