Bergom Translational Research Laboratory
The overarching research goal of the Bergom laboratory is to identify novel molecular targets to improve and personalize breast cancer care. The Bergom laboratory embraces collaborative research and also prioritizes the education and training of students and post-doctoral fellows.
We have a research program focusing on defined targets – the DiRas family of tumor suppressors – and the role of these proteins in cancer development, promotion, and progression. We also have a research program using next generation sequencing and novel genetic tools to identify targets that will allow tailored radiation therapy and other treatments in breast cancer, specifically focusing on the role of the tumor microenvironment in breast cancer treatment responses. The goals of these studies are to identify predictive and prognostic features of breast cancer to better classify and treat breast cancers, and ultimately to identify new treatment strategies to improve patient outcomes.Learn More
