Welcome to the Laura Heiser Lab

The research laboratory of Laura Heiser, Ph.D., is focused on identifying predictors of drug response and resistance, using novel imaging techniques to identify phenotypic changes associated with molecular aberrations and therapeutic response, and studying the influence of the microenvironment on cancer cells. In all of this research, the lab uses well-integrated experimental and computational approaches to understand the complexity of cancer. Because this work is necessarily multidisciplinary in nature, the lab frequently collaborate with diverse teams of scientists, as illustrated by involvement in the NIH LINCS Consortium, NCI Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC), and DREAM Project
