Our goal is to understand how cells, tissues and organisms survive exposure to high energy radiation such as X-rays. We are identifying and studying genes and chemical molecules that modulate the effects of radiation. Chemicals that modulate the effect of radiation have the potential to improve radiation therapy of cancer. We use Drosophila melanogaster_ fruit fly _ in our studies because it is a good model for human biology.
