Some highlights of Dr. Karni's research:

• Discovered the mechanism involved in breast cancer cell growth leading to early detection, treatment.

• Identified a genetic protein likely to be involved in the development and spread of glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive type of brain cancer in adults.

• Found a process in which cancer cells become resistant to certain drugs, leading to reliable prediction of which patients will most be helped by chemotherapy and which will not.            

He leads a team who focus on alternative RNA splicing and how splicing factors contribute to cancer development, tumor progression and the metastatic process.
