Our laboratory seeks to elucidate the intricacies of cancer development and its associated risk factors through the use of murine models. Our studies incorporate a variety of animal strains, in conjunction with a number of useful analytical techniques, to aid our exploration of how lifestyle factors such as food consumption, exercise, and obesity play a role in stimulating the incidence and progression of cancer development. Understanding the impacts of these factors serves as highly useful information in improving cancer prevention strategies.
