The BCGSP will unite the expertise of three nation leading laboratories, each tackling the question of sex as a biological variable from a unique and complementary standpoint: epigenetics, cancer biology/functional genomics, and immunology. We have a proven history of collaboration—with nine joint publications since 2017 and multiple co-authored papers in the pipeline. See our areas of interest below:

Epigenetic modifiers such as demethylases have been linked to slowing tumor growth.

Patrolling T cells in the bladder tumor microenvironment may be compromised in males.
