application of high-throughput genomics strategies, with special emphasis on large-scale DNA sequencing and bioinformatics. He has spent much of his career working within, and leading, teams to conduct large-scale high-throughput genomics projects. A current focus of his research activities involves the development and application of “next generation” sequencing approaches to characterize cancer genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes, with the aim of comprehensive identification of the genetic and epigenetic changes that drive cancer progression. With such data, and as co-Leader of the BC Cancer Personalized Oncogenomics Project, his objective is the development of a new generation of diagnostic, prognostic and treatment strategies to benefit cancer patients.
