Reflecting her prior training in molecular biology, her research has been focused on three areas: (1) KIT oncogenic signaling in the pathogenesis of GIST and the mechanisms of drug resistance to targeted kinase inhibitor therapies; (2) oncogenic signaling in angiosarcoma, with the characterization of KDR (VEGFR2) activating mutations in breast angiosarcoma and MYC/FLT4 gene amplifications in radiation-associated angiosarcoma; and (3) fusion gene discovery and fusion transcript characterization in diagnosis and prognosis of soft tissue tumors. In the past 5 years, her lab has discovered a significant number of novel translocations, including NAB2-STAT6 in solitary fibrous tumor, YAP1-TFE3 and WWTR1-CAMTA1 in epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, miR143-NOTCH in malignant glomus tumors, VGLL2-related fusions in congenital spindle cell rhabdomyosarcoma.
