Julia Maxson, Ph.D.

Julia Maxson, Ph.D.: We study how genomic changes manifest at the cellular level to promote cancer formation and progression. We focus on understanding how genetic alterations cooperate to drive leukemia to develop therapeutic strategies.
Maxson Lab


Lara Davis, M.D.
Lara E. Davis, M.D.: We focus on translational sarcoma research. Current projects include targeting the osteosarcoma immune microenvironment through analysis of tumor biopsies and in vivo modelling; identification and characterization of unrecognized kinase fusions in complex karyotype sarcomas; and optimizing CDK4 inhibition as a method to increase sarcoma sensitivity to chemotherapy. All projects incorporate human tumor specimens and we frequently conduct correlative.
Davis Lab
Alexey Danilov, M.D., Ph.D.

Alexey Danilov, M.D., Ph.D.: We conduct highly translational research leading to innovative clinical trials. Interests include novel targets within the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; mechanism of action and resistance to transcriptional CDKs. The project will focus on cancer cell signaling and investigate novel molecular targets in B-cell malignancies, and will match the candidate’s interests and experience.
Danilov Lab

Gordon Mills, M.D., Ph.D.

Gordon Mills, M.D., Ph.D.: Join a highly productive dynamic translational research effort, characterizing mechanisms of drug sensitivity and resistance in human tumors. Access to human tissues as well as a broad array of wet bench and bioinformatics tools provides a rich environment for fellows to explore.
Mills Lab

Sudarshan Anand, Ph.D.
Sud Anand, Ph.D.: We are broadly interested in identifying and characterizing non-coding RNAs in the host cells that impact tumor progression. We welcome candidates that can lead efforts to understand functions of non-coding RNAs in immune cells in the tumor microenvironment.
Anand Lab
Amy Moran, Ph.D.

Amy Moran, Ph.D.: Work in a translational cancer immunotherapy lab evaluating the cross talk between sex steroids and immune cell function. Current projects include the role of the microbiome in modulating immuno-therapy responses and immune cell function (in a clinical trial and mouse model) and novel mechanisms of action of non-conventional inhibitors of T & NK cell function.
