Nicole Spardy, PhD

Dr. Nicole Spardy is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. William Hahn, M.D., Ph.D. at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Nicole earned her doctoral degree at The University of Pittsburgh in 2009, where her research focused on understanding how human papillomavirus (HPV) oncoprotein-induced activation of the DNA damage response contributes to carcinogenesis in patients with Fanconi Anemia.  Her current research interests include using functional genomic screens to identify novel therapeutic targets in ovarian cancers that harbor defects in homologous recombination-mediated DNA repair.
