Don L. Gibbons, M.D., Ph.D. maintains a large and active lung cancer research laboratory. His lab team works in understanding the regulation of cancer cell invasion and metastasis by microRNAs (short molecules of genetic information that control the production of proteins in the cells) and the role of the tumor microenvironment (immune cells and extracellular matrix) in those same processes. In their studies the team uses human samples and clinical data, cell line models and mouse models.
