Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a highly aggressive disease that affects young women and currently has no effective treatment. The goal of our studies is to identify new therapeutic strategies for this particular subtype of breast cancer.

Synthetic lethality is a powerful approach to selectively eliminate vulnerable cancer cells, and thus can be exploited for cancer therapy. Many studies including our own indicate that synthetic lethality screens could be a promising approach to identify novel drug targets for TNBC. A postdoctoral position is available to establish a genome-wide synthetic lethal screen to identify potent combination therapies for TNBC subtypes.
