General Research Interest

Systems biology of oncogenesis and malignancy.  Prediction of drug targets and optimal therapeutics based on integrative knowledge analysis of individual cancers oncogenome.

Research Description

Dr. Aronow's research efforts are directed to the goal of bringing complete knowledge of gene functions and gene activity to the analysis disease mechanisms.  To do this he works with investigators in many different areas of research to use technologies that measure gene activity and gene variation and mutation across the whole genome. His group works on the analysis of data and the development of databases that help researchers to predict active pathways of cancer based on gene expression analyses using gene expression and gene variation -sensitive microarrays and next-generation sequencing technologies.  He is now working on the development of new database system that uses extensive knowledge and data that profiles drug sensitivities of different cancers to help predict the powerful therapeutic agents against different cancers.

Transinstitutional Work

Dr. Aronow is collaborating with several investigators from the James and the The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital in order to understand the molecular basis of colon cancer malignancy and the regulation of gene expression and differentiation of stem cells.
