Academic Interests

Metabolic reprogramming is a fundamental feature of cancer. Dr. Faubert’s laboratory investigates how these metabolic adaptations support cancer cell growth and proliferation, including the role of altered metabolism during metastasis. A major challenge in cancer research has been understanding which metabolic pathways are utilized in live tumors, in a native environment. The Faubert lab has established a variety of methods including isotope tracing, metabolomics and metabolic flux analysis to dissect the metabolic programs of tumors in vivo. The overall goal of the lab is to identify the key fuels and pathways that drive cancer growth and to leverage this understanding into diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities.
