The Wyatt Lab

What We Do

Our overarching goal is to understand how human cells execute accurate DNA repair and maintain chromosome stability. The physiological significance of our research is underscored by the fact that defects in DNA repair and/or genome stability give rise to several deleterious diseases, including cancer. We use a powerful combination of in vitro and in vivo approaches and technologies to address our questions. Learn more about our research & experimental approaches below.


Unlocking the Mysteries of DNA Nucleases in Genome Stability

We are interested in studying how the potentially damaging power of DNA nucleases is directed to safeguard genome integrity. Our long-term goal is to understand how human cells execute accurate DNA repair, a major barrier to the development of cancer.
