About Michael Feigin


Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Assistant Professor of Oncology
  • Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics


Education and Training:

  • PhD - Stony Brook University, Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology


  • Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cancer Biology


Research Overview:

Our lab seeks to understand the molecular causes of cancer to develop better therapies and improve patient outcome. Through a combination of computational and experimental methods, we study how genes are regulated in cancer, and how changes in gene regulation and cell signaling networks drive tumor progression.
