 DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
  My laboratory’s research seeks to address the means by which specific oncogene and tumor suppressor gene defects contribute to the pathogenesis of colon and other cancers. Present areas of emphasis include selected studies of the APC/β-catenin/TCF, CDX2, and E-cadherin pathways, the generation and in-depth analysis of mouse models of colorectal tumorigenesis, and studies of the role of miRNA alterations in cancer, particularly colorectal cancers.
