Research Detail

We use multiple approaches to understand the biological and functional significance of thyroid cancer stem cells, the regulatory role of transforming growth factor beta and microRNA expression in these cancer stem cells. We also study other neuroendocrine tumors such as intestinal carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors and pituitary tumors. Our overall goal is to characterize the biological features of cancer stem cells and their regulation in order to develop more effective therapies for highly lethal endocrine cancers.
