Molecular Oncology Department Faculty
The research of the Department of Molecular Oncology is centered on understanding basic mechanisms of cancer biology and identifying opportunities for further translational and clinical cancer research. The long-term goal is to develop novel cancer therapies for a variety of cancers in close collaboration with clinical faculty at Moffitt.
Our research falls into five research themes including gene expression & signal transduction, mouse models of human cancer, epigenetics, systems oncology, and cancer therapeutics. Our faculty use sophisticated models and techniques to accomplish their research. Postdoctoral, PhD students, undergraduates, and staff are exceptionally trained in technologies ranging from mouse modeling, 3D organoid tissue culture methods, Next-Generation sequencing, molecular biology and biochemistry.
