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.
Thank you to the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the conference organizers for a wonderful conference! Catalina, PhD candidate, presented a talk titled “9-1-1 DNA Damage Response Clamp Subunit RAD9A Promotes Checkpoint Signaling to Maintain Genomic Stability,” and Matthew and Michael, undergraduates, presented a poster titled “Multiple Mammalian 9-1-1 DNA Damage Response Complexes Are Important for Meiotic Chromosome Maintenance.”
