We are interested in discovering and functionally characterizing new oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in skin cancer. We seek to understand how these novel genes maintain homeostasis in epithelial tissues in general as well as the skin in particular. We use genomics and proteomics-based approaches combined with animal and human skin tissue models. The ultimate goal of our research is to improve current treatment paradigms and identify actionable therapeutic targets.
The Lee Lab is located on the second floor of the Center for Clinical Sciences Research Building on the Stanford University campus.
