The Chien Laboratory

The primary focus of the Chien Laboratory in Applied Genomics & Cancer Therapeutics (AGCT) is to:

  1. understand fundamental biological pathways contributing to the molecular carcinogenesis of ovarian cancer, and
  2. to develop effective therapies that target critical vulnerabilities/dependencies in ovarian cancer.

Applied Genomics

We are interested in applying genomic and functional genomic approaches to understand critical driver genes, synthetic lethalities, and biological pathways contributing to cancer evolution and drug resistance in ovarian cancer
