To learn experimental techniques in basic research related to cancer biology
Dr. Doebele’s research is focused on basic and translational research related to lung cancer. His laboratory is developing predictive biomarkers for targeted lung cancer therapy and studying the molecular mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapy in lung cancer.
Dr. Doebele’s laboratory uses in vitro and in vivo models of lung cancer to understand the interplay of cell signaling networks that drive the growth and metastasis of lung tumors. His laboratory also evaluates patient samples to identify genetic or protein markers of sensitivity and resistance to targeted therapies. Ultimately, these efforts will enable improvements in personalized therapy for lung cancer patients.
