Associate Professor of Biochemistry and of Medicine (Oncology)
M.D. and Ph.D. in Cell Biology (Harvard University)
Joint with Department of Medicine
The Rohatgi Lab is working to elucidate the biochemical and cell biological principles that govern signaling pathways that sit at the intersection between developmental biology and cancer. Their toolkit combines bulk biochemical techniques, such as cell-free reconstitution, with microscopy using novel optical probes to study the dynamics of signal propagation in cells. The group strives to develop novel strategies for the manipulation of these pathways for cancer therapies and applications in regenerative medicine.
