ABOUT THE RESEARCHER

OVERVIEW

The Gutierrez laboratory is focused on discovery of molecular oncogenesis and novel therapeutic targets for chemoresistant human cancers, including high-risk T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and treatment-resistant sarcomas. Our approach combines functional genetics, biochemistry and small molecule screens, leveraging the zebrafish models of these high-risk human cancers we have recently developed.
