Research Summary

Dr. Khan is an NIH-funded, well published, surgeon-scientist who seeks to use modern molecular biology to improve our understanding and treatment of patients with gastrointestinal cancers. The Khan lab performs basic scientific investigation and translational research in close collaboration with other experts at the Yale Cancer Center in order to advance the field of oncology. Our lab is currently studying the genetic basis underlying the mechanism of metastasis, in addition to the relationship between sex hormones, metabolite and protein expression on colon cancer patient outcomes. Furthermore, we perform clinical outcomes research in surgery for cancers which arise from the stomach, liver, pancreas, bile duct, small intestine, colon, appendix, and skin. Dr. Khan is also the Principal Investigator at Yale for a national clinical trial sponsored by the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) studying colorectal cancer chemoprevention.
