Christopher Maher, PhD

Professor, Internal Medicine

The Maher lab is an integrated team of experimental and computational biologists focused on translating genome-based discoveries into the clinic. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms driving metastatic progression and treatment resistance in cancer. To accomplish this, our lab combines the analysis of large-scale ‘-omics’ data with molecular biology, cellular biology, and biochemistry.
