Introduction
My work focuses on cancer genetics, tumor evolution, and response to chemotherapy. Specific questions I am interested in are: → How do mutations found in human cancers affect tumor progression in mouse models? → How do cancer cells lose their terminal differentiation and become more "stem-cell like" as tumors progress? → How do standard of care therapies produce unwanted side effects, and can this be avoided? To answer these questions, I've used genetics, RNA sequencing, single cell RNA sequencing, stereotaxic delivery of viruses, molecular biology, immunohistochemistry with high throughput quantitation, and biochemistry. R scripts and cellprofiler pipelines that I have written are at github: https://github.com/jevanveen
