Our research is focused on the study of cancer from a genomics perspective. We are particularly interested in the identification of cancer driver mutations, genes and pathways across tumour types and in the study of the mutational processes across tissues and genomic regions.

Contribute to precision cancer medicine

Precision medicine—understood as the ability to prescribe anti-cancer drugs that specifically target driver alterations in a given tumour—as opposed to traditional chemotherapeutic approaches is an emerging paradigm in clinical and translational research in oncology. The possibility to associate the alterations observed in a patient’s tumour with suitable anti-cancer therapies relies heavily on our ability to accurately identify the alterations that drive the malignancy, as well as those that predict its sensitivity or resistance to drugs.

Our lab seeks to contribute to the advancement of precision medicine, in particular the interpretation of the genomic variants of tumours, thus facilitating the identification of therapeutic options for cancer patients. With this aim, we have developed an approach and several bioinformatics resources to accurately interpret alterations in human tumours. This approach is available at
