Samir Amin

Associate Research Scientist



I work in the comparative genomics field to decode evolutionary history of spontaneous canine and human glioma. My current research is focused on characterizing and targeting evolutionarily constrained (epi-) genetic elements and underlying tissue-specific selection pressures that can drive brain tumor progression and therapy resistance. | About | CV
