Human Biology Division, Fred Hutch
Dr. Sita Kugel studies pancreatic cancer, one of the most aggressive and deadly types of cancer. She works to understand the molecular changes that underpin different subtypes of pancreatic cancer and how these could be exploited to develop new targeted therapies. Dr. Kugel focuses on changes to DNA that affect how genes are turned on and off without altering the DNA sequence itself. She has developed several preclinical models of pancreatic cancer to test the consequences of these changes and potential therapies.
