Clinical and Academic Interests
Dr. Kyle Schachtschneider is strongly committed to an academic career in translational cancer research where he seeks to integrate multi-omics and gene editing approaches to uncover and alter molecular mechanisms driving tumorigenesis, facilitating the development of personalized tumor models, improved early detection and prognostic biomarkers, and improved treatment stratification in clinical practice. As cancer is driven by the accumulation of genetic driver mutations that confer selective growth advantages, these techniques hold promise for improving treatment strategies for a wide range of human malignancies including solid tumors and hematological cancers. His current research projects utilize genomic and epigenomic data to elucidate the mechanisms underlying clinically relevant hepatocellular carcinoma tumor phenotypes in preclinical and clinical settings.
