Research Interest

Working with a strong translational emphasis of “bench to bedside,” Dr. Moll is using engineered mouse models and proved that this feature creates new tumor vulnerabilities that can be therapeutically exploited. She and her team have shown that both the genetic or pharmacological removal of mutant p53 in mice with advanced mutant p53-driven lymphomas, colon or liver cancer causes marked tumor cell killing and suppression of growth, invasion and metastasis, and extends mouse survival by over 50 percent. Dr. Moll also made numerous fundamental discoveries about the p63 and p73 genes, “cousins” of p53. In addition to unraveling their complex roles in cancer, she identified surprising roles for both genes in healthy tissues.
