Translational GIST & Sarcoma Research
Welcome to the Schaefer Lab!
Our translational research efforts are centered on the biology, genetics, and molecular mechanisms of sarcomas with the goal to develop novel therapeutics. We use a combination of genomic, structural, functional, and multiplexed imaging studies to uncover the biologic mechanisms driving sarcoma oncogenesis. One major focus of our current research efforts is to decipher the mechanisms of cell cycle perturbations in sarcoma, paving the way for the discovery of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
