With its pioneering work in next-generation sequencing and analysis of RNA, Dr. Thompson's lab is tackling HER2-positive breast cancer — and also applying that research to thyroid cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and renal cancer.
The Hormones and Cancer Laboratory harnesses data from its high-throughput sequencing projects to develop integrated models of the genomic architecture of breast cancer cells to help advance novel HER2-targeted therapies.
The lab's two main research projects focus on predicting clinical response to HER2-targeted therapy in patients whose breast cancer is resistant to trastuzumab, and modeling the genomic landscape of HER2-positive breast cancer.
Contact Dr. Thompson about his research on RNA sequence analysis, development of integrated models of the genomic architecture of breast cancer cells, and analytical programs for thyroid cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and renal cancer.
