The major goal of my laboratory is to understand the mechanisms by which liver cancers develop, grow and spread; with the goal of identifying the critical pathways needed for the growth of individual cancers and eventually being able to provide the necessary information so that a doctor treating a patient with liver cancer can select specific treatments targeted at the growth signaling pathways which are most critical for that individual patient's cancer and can tailor the treatment design to most effectively control or eliminate that specific cancer. This individualized or personalized medicine will allow effective treatment of cancer with minimal side effects.
The second goal of our laboratory is to develop and validate methods for early detection and diagnosis of primary liver, biliary and pancreas cancers.
