Early Detection, Novel Therapies, and a Better Understanding of Endocrine Cancers

The Endocrine Neoplasia Research Lab focuses on the genetic and epigenetic abnormalities in endocrine tumors. Understanding their origin and development  will lead to better strategies for early detection of endocrine cancers and  therapeutic targets.

Current areas of investigation include:

  1. Identification and clinical validation of thyroid cancer biomarkers that could lead to early detection and better prognostication,
  2. Molecular classification and mechanism of dysregulated genes in malignant adrenal tumors,
  3. Novel therapeutic approaches to treat thyroid or adrenal cancer subpopulations that do not respond well to current conventional therapeutic strategies
  4. Molecular basis of gender and ethnic disparity in thyroid cancer incidence.
