BlayOur main research focus is on colorectal cancer, but we are also interested in the biology of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and esophagus. We are looking at the different small molecules that are important in the tumor microenvironment, and drugs that may interfere with this mechanism of enhancement of cancer growth and metastasis.(lab)
