Research Interests

Ms. Byrne's research interests are in the genetics of genitourinary cancers and uveal melanoma. She is a co-investigator and coordinator of the Spectrum of Clinical Phenotype of the BAP1-tumor Predisposition syndrome, which is aimed at characterizing the clinical phenotypes associated with different germline variants of BAP1 in order to dissect its complex functions.

She is also a co-investigator of the Genetics of Uveal Melanoma study, and the Germline Genetic Determinants of Transformation of Uveal Nevi: Towards Early Diagnosis and Prevention of Disease Progression. The goal of these studies is to better understand the genetic causes of eye melanoma and develop a biomarker that could be tested in saliva or blood to detect which nevi are at high-risk for progression to melanoma.
