Assistant Professor, Department of Dermatology
Dr. Shain utilizes a variety of –omic approaches to better understand the biology of melanoma. The laboratory has made important contributions discovering melanoma driver genes and delineating the evolution of melanoma. These areas remain an important focus of the laboratory. The laboratory is also heavily engaged in single-cell DNA/RNA sequencing, illuminating many aspects of cancer biology that are poorly understood due to limitations of current technologies geared towards bulk cell analyses.
