Areas of Research
- Skin Cancer
- Targeted Therapy
The McQuade Laboratory studies how potentially modifiable host factors, such as diet and obesity, impact tumor biology, the gut microbiome, and immune response. We follow a model of reverse translation where clinical observations are made and then the underlying biology elucidated using preclinical models and patient biospecimens. Our ultimate goal is to improve the outcomes of cancer patients with novel interventions.
Support for the McQuade lab includes, but is not limited to: Conquer Cancer Foundation/ASCO Career Development Award; Rising Tide Foundation; The American Cancer Society; The Elkins Foundation; The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research The Melanoma Research Alliance; The Physician’s Science Program Award; The Seerave Foundation.
Join Our Lab
The McQuade lab is looking for a talented post-doctoral fellow to join our lab to help examine the interaction between diet, microbiome, metabolism, immunity and treatment response at MD Anderson with our amazing multidisciplinary team and exceptional collaborations.
