Dr. Gold’s research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of molecules that sequence-specifically bind to duplex DNA via triple helix formation in order to modulate gene transcription; the generation of anticancer drugs that efficiently form DNA lesions that are deadly to the cell but do not cause mutations that could lead to secondary cancers; and the development of small-molecule inhibitors of specific DNA repair pathways that are involved in tumor resistance to anticancer drugs.
