Molecular Features of Lung Adenocarcinoma Progression
Study of the effects of changes in chromosome 7q on the ability of lung cancer cells to become invasive. Early studies show that alterations in a specific chromosome in lung cancer cells are associated with a tendency to invade and spread into normal cell areas. This study proposes to better characterize specific effects in cells and potentially identify new opportunities for more effective therapies.
