Photo of USRP student Enoch Park in the lab, pipetting a solution.Modeling cancer in vitro offers a strong tool to study pathways and identify and test new therapies in gastric cancer. Enoch will be developing novel methodologies through which the ErbB2 mutation in gastric cancers can be modeled in tissue cultures and explore how acquiring this mutation specifically alters normal gastric tissue.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2017:
