The Vaishnavi lab’s broad research interests focus on improving our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that drive initiation, maintenance, and progression of lung adenocarcinoma and to use those findings to identify innovative, clinically-relevant therapeutic approaches. We combine genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs), patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models, and in vitro culture systems of lung cancer to identify mechanistically-based therapeutic approaches to be tested preclinically.
