Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Our laboratory is focused on adenocarcinomas, which account for the majority of human solid tumors that result in death. Active projects include pancreatic, esophageal, colon, and lung adenocarcinomas. We have a particular interest in the regulation of signal transduction with respect to wound healing and cancer development. Active projects not only include cancer pathogenesis, but also the development of new diagnostic assays and drugs.
