Developing Computational Approaches to Dissecting Predictors of Therapeutic Response and Resistance

The Liu lab operates at the intersection of clinical oncology, molecular biology, and computational biology, developing computational approaches to dissect therapeutic resistance and susceptibility to chemo-, targeted-, and immuno-therapies in patient tumors. Two broad areas of inquiry exist in the lab:

  1. Development of parsimonious predictive models utilizing statistical and machine learning approaches and integrating clinical and molecular data to guide clinical management.

  2. Mapping of clinical tumor heterogeneity and evolution of resistance and metastasis, using longitudinally collected tumor samples from patients over time, treatments, development of resistance, and from different metastatic sites to develop insight into drivers of resistance and metastasis.
