There is an urgent need to individualize radiation therapy for patients to improve outcomes and quality of life. The Kamran lab focuses on the application of computational genomic approaches to characterize tumor evolution to treatment, understand mechanisms of radiotoxicity and radioresistance, and explore the radiation-antitumor immunity interaction. In addition, we are interested in dissecting translational science in diverse populations, something that is imperative to the field of oncology. It is essential that these populations are not left behind in the field of translational genomics.
