The Lee lab is interested in discovering and functionally characterizing new oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in skin cancer. They seek to understand how these novel genes maintain homeostasis in epithelial tissues in general as well as the skin in particular. They use genomics and proteomics-based approaches combined with animal and human skin tissue models. The ultimate goal of the Lee lab's research is to improve current treatment paradigms and identify actionable therapeutic targets.
