Dr. Barnoud’s laboratory uses genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) to study the p53 tumor suppressor, the most frequently mutated gene in human cancer. The main goal of the Barnoud Lab is to study the impact of p53 variants on cancer risk and response to therapy.  A second major research focus is to understand the role of heat shock proteins (HSPs) on the initiation and progression of cancer.  The Barnoud Lab employs a series of inhibitors that target HSPs with the hopes of developing effective cancer therapies, with a focus on gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.
