The aims of the Endocrine Oncology Lab are twofold: To improve the pre-operative diagnosis of endocrine tumors and identify novel therapeutic targets for endocrine cancers.
Our group uses a translational approach to understand endocrine pathology. We focus on:
Neuroendocrine tumors of the stomach, pancreas and gastrointestinal tract
The laboratory is located in the Weill Cornell Medical College and collaborates with several other groups at the institution and world wide.
We have accrued a vast collection of endocrine tumors and cell lines. Our laboratory utilizes advanced technology that allows for a comprehensive approach to endocrine tumor biology. In addition, we have maintained an extensive database that permits correlative studies of molecular markers and clinical parameters.
