Jason Locasale

Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology
Pharmacology & Cancer Biology


Our research interests are in three interconnected areas:  1) Quantitative and computational biology of metabolism. 2) The role of diet and pharmacological therapeutics in shaping metabolic pathways in health and cancer.  3) The interaction of metabolism and epigenetics.  Each of these synergistic areas utilizes the metabolomics technologies we develop along with our expertise in computational and molecular biology.
