The Karpf Lab focuses on understanding oncogenic mechanisms in high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) and using this information to develop new therapeutic approaches. HGSOC is the most common and deadly form of ovarian cancer. Specific projects are centered on the transcription factor FOXM1 and its bidirectional gene partner RHNO1, as well as on the cell cycle regulator CCNE1.
