Molecular Biography of Lung Cancer Metastasis
It is unclear as to how lung cancer cells gain the ability to invade into surrounding tissue, spread to distant or-gans, and successfully form metastases. Dr. Chuang�s research will characterize the gene expression changes that drive lung cancer invasion and metastasis by assigning a unique barcode ID to every tumor cell to allow the easy connection of the primary lung cancer to the metastases it produced.
