Current Research and Scholarly Interests I intend to contribute to a better understanding of the genetic basis of cancer, with a specific focus on the role of epigenetic regulators or epigenetic marks in the pathogenesis of AML. I will also undertake basic work in defining the landscape of mammalian epigenome in both normal and malignant states, and the molecular mechanisms by which integration of all these data establish a 3D regulatory network. I am especially interested in identifying and characterizing the biological mechanisms of cancer stem cells from an epigenetic perspective through which the mechanistic and biological relevance of many epigenetic regulators will be unraveled and connected.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Pollack lab uses genomic approaches to investigate the pathobiology of human cancer, and to identify strategies for improved diagnosis, prognostication and treatment. Technologies include deep sequencing (exomes, genomes, transcriptomes, and cistromes), DNA microarrays, RNAi screens, genome editing, and single-cell analysis. Studies span several tumor types, including prostate, breast, lung, colon and pancreatic cancer, with a focus on human cancer specimens and patient-derived cells.
