Charles A. Janeway Professor of Pediatrics

The Alt laboratory studies mechanisms that maintain genomic stability in mammalian cells. The programmed recombination and hypermutation events in lymphocytes and the general DNA repair mechanisms involved in these processes are a focus. The laboratory also studies mechanisms that promote and prevent oncogenic translocations. Approaches range from molecular genetics and biochemistry to animal models.
