What WE DO


Signals emanating from the  microenvironment dramatically  influence the fate of adult stem cells and cancer cells. Such cues may determine whether a tumor responds to therapy or not and whether children are born with increased susceptibility to complex disorders, including cancer. We utilize a combination of cell culture-based and murine models of adult stem cell and tumor cell plasticity to address these important problems
