Our laboratory focuses on lung cancer. Late detection of this cancer, and resistance to current anti-cancer therapies, have contributed to lung cancer being the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide.
Lung cancer research is limited by a lack of appropriate laboratory models in which to conduct preclinical studies. Generating preclinical lung cancer models is an important focus of our research. We are using these models to gain a better understanding of how lung cancer initiates, progresses and metastasises.
