The Westbrook Lab at BCM is dedicated to tackling fundamental problems in cancer biology and leveraging our discoveries into therapeutic approaches for cancer patients. We have developed new genetic platforms for delineating the principles and pathways that govern cancer genesis, metastasis, and response to therapy.

We are devoted to collaborative science, and are seeking passionate scientists with diverse strengths in genetics, cell biology, bioinformatics or chemical biology.

Here you will find a brief introduction into problems of interest, and the creative scientists trying to solve them.
