I am interested in examining the role of key developmental genes and regulators of pluripotency in lung tumor development. Mounting evidence suggests that many of these genes may have multifaceted roles in both the development and attenuation of tumorigenesis. I am also interested in exploring the potential role of tumor vaccines in the context of lung cancer.
