“Characterization of PD-L1 Blockade Therapy Response”

Aditi’s project combines data science and computational techniques with biology to annotate genes and analyze the RNA expressions comprehensively of over 100,000 patients to study how they differ significantly between tumor cells vs normal cells. This work will involve different databases and tackling biological and oncological topics to study 8 types of cancers as well as creating a CRISPR library.
