Nicole Brossier, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, Pediatrics

In the Brossier lab, we are interested in identifying which factors increase the rate of tumorigenesis following oncogenic mutation and the molecular basis underlying this effect, with an eye towards using this information for patient risk assessment and to identify new targets for therapeutic intervention. Projects in the lab revolve around two major themes: (1) how neurodevelopmental factors (cell type, age) affect response to oncogenic mutation, and (2) how environmental factors (including maternal diet) modulate the effects of mutation on the cell of origin and tumor penetrance.
