I originally created this page when I worked in the Gautier Lab at Columbia University. I learned about OpenWetWare from the Hoatlin Lab, and I joined in order to contribute to the Gautier Lab site.

Current Research Topics

I am currently in the laboratory of Dr. Jacques Banchereau studying immune system development and the immune microenvironment in urothelial cell bladder cancer using transcriptomics in the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.

Previous Research Topics

Lily Wang

Laboratory of Lewis Cantley, Weill Cornell Medical Center, 2013-2014

  • Studying targeted drug therapies including cabozantinib and buparlisib for advanced prostate cancer

Laboratory of Jean Gautier, Columbia University, 2005-2009

  • Studying the role of Fanconi anemia (FA) proteins in DNA replication and repair. I have been studying the molecular requirements for the recruitment of FA proteins to chromatin during unperturbed DNA replication. I have also been examining the role of FA proteins in the replication restart and DNA repair.

Laboratory of Giovanni Romeo, Hospital of Bologna, Italy, 2002-2003

  • Using RET tyrosine kinase mutants found in Hirschsprung's disease and cancer predisposition syndromes, we studied the role of RET in enteric aganglionosis and caspase activation.

Sedivy Lab, Brown University, 2000-2002

  • Using the Shokat method, we engineered Raf-1 mutants with a mutated ATP-binding pocket that preferentially used orthogonal ATP analogs. Using these mutants, we investigated the downstream substrates of Raf-1.
