Current Research and Scholarly Interests We analyze the mechanisms by which mammalian cells adapt to environmental changes, such as exposure to foreign chemicals, hypoxia, or hormones, by altering the transcription of specific sets of genes. We use both biohchemical and genetic approaches and many techniques in molecular and cellular biology. See: http://www.stanford.edu/group/whitlock/

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My immediate research aim is to determine the molecular basis for secondary resistance in basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Working with the Oro laboratory, we have made significant progress toward identifying factors that play a role in resistant BCCs. Using bioinformatic and functional cell biology approaches, we have identified novel drivers of BCC tumor resistance. My current focus is to determine the tumorigenic potential for putative drivers of resistance by developing reliable in vitro and in vivo functional assays.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cancers of the prostate, breast and ovary account for a major proportion of new cancer cases and cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. Our recent research focus has been on developing improved statistical methods for the design and conduct of studies involving hereditary predisposition and modifiable lifestyle characteristics in the etiologies of site-specific cancers.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I use optogenetic and chemogenetic techniques to modulate the activity of specific neuronal populations using a candidate-based approach. I couple these manipulations with behavioral and metabolic phenotyping to identify neuronal populations that elicit changes in brown adipose tissue thermogenic activity, basal metabolic rate, lipid and glucose homeostasis and/or arousal state. I then examine circuit connectivity using viral tracing techniques. I am always open to collaborations
