About Us

Major goals of the Engelward laboratory are to contribute to our understanding of factors that impact genomic stability through basic research, and through the development and application of novel technologies.

  • Develop mouse models for fluorescent detection of rare genetic changes
  • Reveal the impact of genes, environment, and physiological conditions on genomic stability
  • Create a high-throughput platform for measuring DNA damage in human cells
  • Apply high throughput technology for epidemiology and drug development
  • Explore the interfaces among DNA damage, repair, and infection
  • Mitigate infection-induced toxicity
