DNA double strand break repair and human disease
Our lab focuses in the understanding on how cells deal with broken chromosomes. Indeed, unbalanced repair of DNA breaks lead to the accumulation of genomic alterations, a phenomenon known as genomic instability that is at the root of the development of several diseases, including cancer and some rare syndromes.
