The Elias Laboratory focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of women’s cancers through innovative translational research. Our research interests include the application of genome editing to cancer therapy, use of machine learning to advance cancer early detection, and basic science models to understand cancer pathogenesis.
