About the Lab

The Westbrook lab is dedicated to tackling fundamental problems in cancer biology and leveraging our discoveries into therapeutic approaches for cancer patients. We have developed new genetic platforms for delineating the principles and pathways that govern cancer genesis, metastasis, and response to therapy.

We are devoted to collaborative science, and are seeking passionate scientists with diverse strengths in genetics, cell biology, bioinformatics or chemistry. On our research areas page you will find a brief entry into problems of interest, and the creative scientists trying to solve them.
