Welcome to the Stern Lab
Human cancer is caused by genetic and epigenetic changes that alter hormone-regulated signal transduction pathways, leading to growth dysregulation, and that alter protective responses to DNA damage, leading to genomic instability. The Stern laboratory investigates processes that represent each of these major categories. The goals of this work are better understanding of the underlying causes of human cancer and linkage of this understanding to therapeutic applications.
