Dr. Roger Lo’s laboratory is focused on melanoma research in three thematic areas: 1) Discovering somatically mutated genes in melanoma using exon capture and next-generation sequencing and studying these genes in the pathogenesis of melanoma; 2) Dissecting oncogene co-dependent survival networks in melanoma using V600EB-RAF as a prototypic melanoma oncogene and siRNA library as a discovery tool; and 3) Understanding the mechanisms of primary and acquired resistance to targeted therapies (including B-RAF inhibitors) using integrated genomic technologies.
