Dr. Amander Clark is interested in characterizing molecular programs unique to stem cells. She discovered a locus of genes on human chromosome 12p13 that are specifically expressed in human embryonic stem cells, germ cells and cancer cells. However, the mechanism of these genes in regulating cell biology is almost completely unknown. Her research seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms by which these genes regulate cell biology and to determine the utility of these genes as tumor biomarkers or possibly cancer therapeutics.
