The Sheltzer Lab at CSHL

About the Lab

The Sheltzer Lab was founded in August 2015 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.  We’re working to decipher the genetics of cancer progression using a variety of in silico, in vitro, and in vivo techniques.

We’re particularly interested in the role of aneuploidy in tumorigenesis. We’re developing novel systems to study genome dosage imbalances, in hopes of generating therapies that can specifically eliminate aneuploid cancers while leaving normal cells unharmed.
