报告内容简介:Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide, making the development of new and effective therapeutic interventions to improve clinical outcome of lung cancer patients a desperate demand, which, however, remains an unmet endeavor. Our lab is interested in lung cancer therapeutic resistance, a notoriously known clinic challenge in cancer treatment. We have applied CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing tools to identity cancer genes and pathways that render lung cancer resistant to current therapies. This approach enables rapid identification and validation of new drug targets and modelling of lung cancer therapeutic resistance in vitro and in vivo, bringing about unprecedented possibilities to understand the biology of lung cancer and to attack the most common and deadliest human cancer.
