​The Hangauer lab explores the biology of cancer persister cells, a prevalent yet poorly understood subpopulation of cancer cells that reversibly enter into a quiescent, pro-survival cell state to survive drug treatments.  We seek to discover persister cell gene vulnerabilities, explore their biological mechanisms, and translate our findings into novel therapeutic approaches.
