The Altura Laboratory

The laboratory of Dr. Rachel Altura
Department of Pediatrics *
The Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University

Our laboratory is exploring novel anti-cancer treatments for pediatric and adult malignancies. We are also interested in the toxicities of chemotherapy and on whether mutations in specific genes make children more prone to develop toxicity after chemotherapy treatment.

* In May 2014, Dr. Altura joined the division of Discovery Medicine Oncology, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Lawrenceville, NJ.  Dr. Altura continues to work on her research program at Brown University as an adjunct professor in collaboration with Dr. DeNardo and Dr. Chalwa.
