Research Overview

My group uses genetically engineered murine models of cancer to model human cancer. Our principal interest is in studying colon cancer, but we also have current projects in mammary and prostate tumorigenesis. The primary aims of the group is to genetically recapitulate the different stages of cancer induction and progression, and in so doing identify and validate novel therapeutic targets for these diseases.
