‘Homologous Hope’ Installed at UPenn’s Basser Research Center for Breast Cancer Research

Singapore Biopolis Sculpture Bioinformatics

My newest work was unveiled this March at UPenn’s Basser Research Center for Breast Cancer Research.

The sculpture is based on the BRAC2 gene, which is associated with breast cancer, in the act of “homologous recombination,” a process in which DNA strands repair damage in sister DNA strands that can lead to the disease.
