Sourav Bandyopadhyay, PhD
Associate Professor, Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UCSF
The Bandyopadhyay lab employs new cellular and molecular technologies to tackle the most urgent and clinically important problems in cancer therapy, including functional genomics, drug screens, proteomics and single cell approaches. Critically, these technologies often generate the scale and complexity of data that necessitate the development of new computational algorithms to maximize their impact and fully understand their relevance in the clinic. The lab is focused on identifying mechanisms of drug resistance and targetable synthetic lethal interactions in breast and lung cancers since these diseases are deadly in the metastatic setting and demonstrate suboptimal tumor responses even with out best, most targeted therapies. We are committed to the identification, mechanistic dissection and clinical translation of new targets and target combinations through broad collaborations with biotechnologists, chemists, clinicians and pharma.
