Research

Research in Dr. Crouse's lab centers on DNA mutagenesis and repair in eukaryotic cells. He has particular interest in oxidative damage to DNA, as it is among the most common types of damage and is implicated in major areas of concern, such as aging and cancer. His lab focuses on the DNA mismatch repair system (MMR), which has been of great interest since the discovery of its central role in preventing colon cancer in humans, and they have shown its central role in preventing mutation due to oxidative damage.
