Our lab together with Devon Lawson laboratory will help lead an unprecedented national effort to document the intricate cell types and states in breast tissue that underlie cancer. The Human Breast Cell Atlas project will be supported by a $4 million Seed Network grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

The UCI team spans multiple schools and disciplines and includes Jered Haun of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and clinical researchers Kari Kansal, Erin Lin and Ritesh Parajuli of the School of Medicine. We will collaborate closely with lead investigators Nicholas Navin and Bora Lim from the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and Je Lee from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York.
