Research work

The Ben-David lab studies cancer genetics. We focus on an under-studied trait of cancer, called aneuploidy — the presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in cancer cells — and the potential of using this trait to target cancer cells and eliminate tumors. We combine experimental and computational approaches to uncover the basic biology underlying this hallmark of cancer, to track its origins, and uncover its cellular consequences. In addition, we are interested in improving and expanding the arsenal of cancer model systems for basic research and cancer precision medicine. To read more about the lab, see go to the Lab Website.
