The Kuhn-Hicks Laboratory at USC Michelson Center Convergent Science Institute in Cancer (CSI-Cancer) is studying circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the liquid biopsies (blood and bone marrow) of cancer patients as an approach to manage cancer care. Our single-cell multi-omic approach allows us to look at the morphology, proteome, and genome of these CTCs individually. Collectively, this information permits an understanding of the disease in hopes of enabling personalized medicine in oncology.
The Kuhn-Hicks laboratory at USC is a pioneer in mathematical oncology for cancer treatment and progression. The laboratory uses clinical, demographic, and single cell morpho-proteo-genomic data to build predictive models to aid in improving patient care and outcome.
