Dr. Bell's primary research focus is to understand the mechanisms of radiation and chemotherapy resistance and sensitivity. Her research areas are correlative analysis on clinical trial tissue including genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic profiling, with an emphasis on brain and prostate cancer, in order to detect novel tumor biomarkers that correlate with treatment efficacy and survival. Additionally, Dr. Bell is interested in characterizing the effects of common chromatin remodeling mutations on DNA repair and chemo-radiation resistance and sensitivity in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
