We use functional genomic and epigenomic tools to investigate how normal cells are turned into brain tumours. In addition, we use the genomic analyses results to create new animal models of medulloblastoma and ependymoma so that novel targeted therapies can be developed. This multi-layered approach allows for rapid clinically-important changes to brain tumour therapy, such that the quality of life of patients can be drastically improved.

Metallic elements play essential roles in normal cell function as enzyme cofactors, redox sensors, and structural elements.  They also include some of the most potent toxic substances in our environment.  We study the cell biology and toxicology of metals, with a current focus on iron and cadmium.

PhD
Assistant Professor
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

Dr. Thu’s research program focuses on delineating cell and molecular mechanisms governing therapy response in lung cancer. Her research platform integrates clinical and functional genomics to drive biological discovery and uses a variety of in vitro and in vivo lung cancer models. The goal is to discover new approaches for circumventing drug resistance, and identify novel therapeutic strategies to improve patient survival rates.

Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

My primary research interest is in understanding better the genomic and molecular abnormalities in lung and pancreatic cancer, such that we can improve the accuracy of our diagnosis and treatment of these deadly cancers. Comprehensive analysis of these tumors at gene sequence, gene copy number and proteomics levels may provide new “integrated” understanding of the molecular pathology of these tumors.
