Dr. Justin Hwang's laboratory will examine novel regulatory genes that drive malignant behavior of cancers utilizing high throughput functional and clinical informatics approaches. Click to visit Dr. Hwang's lab website.

Laboratory Focus

  • Discover genomic and biological features that characterize therapy resistant endocrine cancers including prostate, ovarian, and breast.

  • Develop informatics algorithms that interrogate -omics data from laboratory models and patient samples.

  • Deploy unbiased genome-scale gene editing or informatics tools to identify novel target genes, biomarkers, or to stratify patients in clinical studies.

  • Develop patient databases and user-friendly tools to facilitate translational studies on UMN cancer patients.
