Mark Sowers

My interests revolve around a central theme of understanding the etiology of disease so as to either exploit it with novel therapeutics or delay onset of disease. I am primarily involved in developing new treatments against Glioblastoma Multiforme, as well as studying nucleoside related therapy  neurotoxicity. This has led me to develop a range of skills to complement my clinical knowledge such as in physical and organic chemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, and a variety of mass spectrometry "omic" techniques as well as mass spectrometry imaging. The goal is that my training will allow me to meet the needs of a physician-scientist that advances the field of medicine.
