Welcome to the Kalluri Laboratory
We are located in the Department of Cancer Biology at MD Anderson Cancer Center. The central mission of the Kalluri Laboratory is to perform innovative and cutting-edge research to unravel how cells and their environment communicate to maintain organ health and how such communication network in tissues is altered in cancer and other diseases. We investigate the biology of cancer with an implicit mission to develop new strategies for diagnosis and therapy. Importantly, the Kalluri Laboratory endeavors to achieve this goal by fostering a fertile training ground for the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists.
The broad research focus areas in the Kalluri Laboratory are:
- Cancer biology and metastasis
- Tumor microenvironment
- Tissue injury and regeneration
- Biology of exosomes in health and disease
