Dr. Joanne Weidhaas’ research seeks to significantly improve personalized treatment and ultimate outcomes for cancer patients by breaking down the barriers between science and clinical care. By focusing on overall tumor biology and specifically the discovery and characterization of functional germ-line genetic markers that predict cancer risk, her lab seeks to facilitate insight into the causes and fundamental driving biology behind cancer.
