Research Description

Dr. Hallett’s lab is primarily interested in the use of bioinformatics and systems biology approaches to the study of breast cancer. In particular, his group is involved in several studies to analyze high-throughput profiles (gene expression, epigenetic, microRNA) in both mouse models of breast cancer and the human disease. For example, one of their primary goals is to identify genes or small gene sets that are predictive of patient outcome, response to therapy, or disease progression. These genes or gene sets can be developed into clinical-applicable devices that assist in the determination of patient therapy. They are also interested in the development of new bioinformatics tools that provide global perspective of the dynamics of the disease. For example, we use bioinformatics to identify sets of genes that stratify the patient population into distinct groups. These groups reflect different types of breast cancer and each subtype may require a distinct therapeutic regime. They are particularly interested in investigating how differences in the tumor microenvironment and patient response as a whole helps or hinders the progression of a tumor. These signals may also be used by clinicians to assist in assigning patient treatment. My publications are available here:
