The Timothy Chan Lab

The Timothy Chan Lab

The focus of my laboratory is to understand the genomic basis of tumor development and treatment response. We use both large-scale genomic analyses and functional dissection to determine what drives oncogenesis. From this information, we seek to develop improved diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for human cancers.
