Dr. Zhang is interested in understanding the causes of genome instability and how it contributes to cancer development. One of the most predominant hallmarks driving human cancer is genome instability, as it creates genome-wide diversity that enables cells to acquire additional capabilities required for cancer development and progression.In particular, Dr. Zhang's lab is trying to determine how the proteins in the Fanconi anemia DNA repair pathway affect cancer development and whether FA proteins are targetable for cancer treatment.
