Teresa Davoli is an Assistant Professor in the Institute for Systems Genetics and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at New York University School of Medicine. Her lab focuses on investigating somatic point mutations and copy number alterations (in particular aneuploidy) in human cancer, integrating bioinformatic analyses of primary tumors with novel experimental tools for large-scale functional genetic approaches. Her lab is particularly interested in proliferation control and cancer immune evasion.
Teresa’s main contribution to the Grand Challenge will be to combine functional genetic approaches and bioinformatic analyses to comprehensively map the genes and pathways that drive tumorigenesis across different human tissues. In addition, she will contribute to the definition of cellular decision maps that will provide a systematic understanding of why different tissues respond in different ways to the same oncogenic stimuli.
