These studies are often conducted in collaboration with scientists in other disciplines at Ohio State, such as food science and agriculture, in a coordinated “crops to clinic” research effort. The laboratory team has expertise in molecular biology, cellular and experimental models of carcinogenesis, and human clinical trials, providing an excellent example of contemporary translational cancer research.
