The major focus of Dr. Dolan’s research has been in the area of DNA damage/repair of anticancer agents that has been extended to the pharmacogenetics of DNA damaging agents. Her laboratory has been involved with: 1) developing a DNA repair modulator that enhances alkylating agent chemotherapy that is currently in clinical trials; 2) determining the role of DNA repair in protecting against therapy related leukemia; 3) identifying heritable and nonheritable genes important in susceptibility to DNA damaging agents and 4) evaluating genetic variation in human metabolizing genes that may be important in determining variability in patient response/toxicity to these agents.
