WELCOME TO THE WEISS LAB
We are a lab in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Cornell University. Our research focuses on how mammalian cells maintain genomic stability and how the loss of genomic integrity and metabolic control contributes to cancer and other diseases. To safeguard against genetic alterations that could lead to cell death, premature senescence, or deregulated proliferation, cells employ a variety of mechanisms that maintain DNA replication fidelity, ensure accurate chromosome segregation, and respond to DNA lesions.
We are now accepting applications for post-doctoral and graduate positions in the lab! For more information, please visit our Join The Lab page.
Congratulations to Ravi Dhawan for his new research grant from the Dextra Undergraduate Research Endowment Fund!
What a summer it’s been! This summer, we welcomed Suzin Webb as our new lab manager! We are so happy to have you. We also had three wonderful summer students: Carla Patricia Reyes-Flores, Natrine Cheuk, and Jamie Cockey. We are so glad to have had you in the lab this summer, and we look forward to hearing what great things you accomplish in the future!
