The Lessnick Lab studies the molecular mechanisms that underlie the development of pediatric cancer, with a focus on Ewing’s sarcoma. Our ultimate goal is to develop a complete understanding of Ewing’s sarcoma, and to apply this understanding to the clinic to positively impact the treatment of children with cancer.
The Lessnick Lab studies the molecular mechanisms that underlie the development of pediatric cancer. The lab is located on the fourth floor of Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah. The lab is a member of the Center for Children at HCI, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Division of Hematology/Oncology at Primary Children's Medical Center, and the Sarcoma Service at both institutions.
Graduate students may enter the lab through the Molecular Biology Program and earn their degree from the Department of Oncological Sciences. Postdoctoral, medical, and other applicants should contact Dr. Lessnick directly.
