The human aging process makes us prone to cancer

and to degenerative diseases

In the Artandi lab, we use sophisticated biochemical, cell biological and genomic approaches to understand the fundamental causes of these diseases. Our goal is to develop new therapeutic approaches to tackle these often intractable disease states. 



Congratulations to Dr. Caitlin Roake who defended her thesis last week! and for her exciting publication in Molecular Cell defining how telomerase RNA is processed in health and in disease.
