Dr. Ana I. Robles received her Ph.D. degree from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Texas, for research done on mouse skin carcinogenesis under the mentorship of Dr. Claudio Conti, at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. She joined the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis as a postdoctoral fellow in 1996, and became a Staff Scientist in 2004.


My research interests include the bioinformatics analysis of microRNA and mRNA expression as it relates to lung cancer, cancer susceptibility syndromes and senescence, the effect of genetic variation on microRNA-mediated regulatory pathways, as well as the identification of lung cancer progenitor cells.
