Some of the genetic mutations that have been directly tied to cancer development are genes that ordinarily help repair DNA damage in cells.  Genes like BRCA1 and 2, which when mutated become culprits in breast and ovarian cancer, ordinarily function to suppress tumors by repairing DNA that has been damaged.

Cancer biologist Patrick Sung was among the first to understand the roles of BRCA1 and 2 in DNA repair, and now that he is at The University of Texas Health Sciences Center San Antonio, he hopes to translate that knowledge into better clinical care for patients.
