The Alani Lab

Welcome to BU Dermatology! The Alani laboratory is focused on understanding the molecular basis of melanoma development, progression, and therapeutic resistance. The aim of our lab is to translate basic research findings to better prevention, detection and treatment of melanoma and to directly enhance the lives of patients currently diagnosed with melanoma.
