Understanding the DNA-Damage “First Responders”: John Petrini at Work
Scientists know that cancer can result from mistakes in DNA repair. But understanding what controls the repair process itself has been a hard nut to crack.
At Work: Molecular Biologist John Petrini
In identifying proteins critical to DNA repair, molecular biologist John Petrini may expand knowledge of how unrepaired DNA damage can lead to cancer.
Expanding the Impact of Precision Medicine to Fuel Discoveries
MSK’s Functional Genomics Initiative will enable basic scientists to take full advantage of the massive amount of data produced by tumor sequencing.
