Welcome to the Chen Lab

Investigators in the Chen Lab seek to understand the etiology of tobacco-related and hormone-related cancers, and to develop gene expression signatures to predict the clinical outcomes of oral cancer to aid the management of oral cancer patients. Through evaluation of environmental factors, genome-wide data on single nucleotide polymorphisms, heterozygosities, gene copy number alterations, gene expression profiles, and tissue microarray data, we hope to determine the links between environmental and genetic factors and the development of – and/or survival from – tobacco- and hormone-related cancers.
