Skin cancer is the most common group of malignancies in humans. Our research is focused on the mechanisms of skin cancer development and progression. For our studies, we utilize a combination of cell culture, in-vivo mouse models, and human skin samples to explore four primary areas:

  1. Genomic analysis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma progression
  2. Interactions of MAP kinase pathways in targeted therapy for melanoma
  3. Establishment of skin as a surrogate biomarker in targeted therapies
  4. The immunology of skin cancer
