Biomedical Research in Digestive Tumors

Our group investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying the malignant transformation of the digestive tract. Using in vitro systems as well as animal models and large human tumor collections we study the role of small GTPases and structural proteins of the epithelial brush border in the oncogenic process. We also use high throughput, genome-wide techniques to identify novel biomarkers of prognosis and response to treatment for patients with colorectal and gastric cancer.
