Our Research and Approach

Cancer Dependency Map Analytics at Sanger Institute

We design algorithms and computational tools for the analysis of large-scale cancer pharmacogenomics and functional genomics datasets (from chemical and genome-editing screens) to the aim of identifiying new oncology therapeutic targets and markers of gene-essentiality/drug-response.

In partnership with Open Targets, we provide computational support and analytic solutions to the international Cancer Dependency Map consortium, and to other projects engaged in the analysis of data from large-scale chemo/genetic screens.

Help us crack cancer – join our growing team!

People

iorio, Francesco
Dr Francesco Iorio
Group Leader

Francesco is responsible for the design of analytical methods and software, and the management of day-by-day operations to deliver scientific milestones toward the definition of a global Cancer Dependency Map: an atlas of genetic dependencies and vulnerabilities, at an individual cancer cell resolution, which could be exploited for the development of cancer targeted and personalized therapies.
