Colon cancer research

Colon cancers are frequently infiltrated by immune and inflammatory cells that play a complex role in regulating lesion growth and progression. Understanding how colon cancer cells survive within the inflammatory milieu of a tumor, and developing approaches that increase their sensitivity to inflammatory cytokines, may ultimately lead to novel approaches for colon cancer therapy and prevention. We employ small molecules to elucidate the mechanisms by which colon cancer evade immune surveillance.
