Craig Bassing Laboratory

Led by Craig Bassing, PhD, researchers in the Craig Bassing Laboratory are studying the contributions of mutations in cellular DNA repair machinery and normal lymphocyte development to oncogenic mechanisms in childhood lymphomas and leukemias. The primary long-term goal of the work in this lab is to design, develop and test novel treatments for pediatric cancers that are more effective and less toxic than current clinical therapies.
