The major theme of our work is how DNA repair processes are disrupted in human cancers and how this can be exploited therapeutically. The biologically significant DNA damage caused by ionizing radiation and a number of cytotoxic drugs requires double-strand break repair for survival. We have largely focused on the role of double-strand break repair and homologous recombination in particular.
