Undergraduate Research Opportunity in the Sobeck Lab
The Sobeck laboratory aims at analyzing the roles of proteins called "tumor suppressors". These proteins play crucial roles in our cells to prevent cancer susceptibility by protecting our cells' chromosomes from accumulating damage. We are focused on the members of the so-called Fanconi Anemia (FA) pathway that are involved in a number of childhood cancers. Currently we have an exciting project that explores a new role for the FA pathway in telomere maintenance.
