Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Our laboratory is focused on the development of adenocarcinomas, which account for the majority of human solid tumors that result in death. In particular, we have focused on the gene AGR2, which is expressed in all adenocarcinomas and supports many of the features displayed by tumors. Active projects include pancreatic, esophageal, colon, and lung adenocarcinomas. Our work not only includes how adenocarcinomas develop, but also their diagnosis and treatment. We have recently developed several clinical assays for the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases.
