 DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
  Approximately 1/3 of follicular thyroid cancers are associated with a chromosomal translocation that results in production of a fusion protein of the transcription factors PAX8 and PPARgamma, denoted PPFP. The laboratory is using cell culture and transgenic mouse model systems to understand the oncogenic function of PPFP. and to evaluate novel therapies.
