Tumor microenvironment and mechanisms of tumor neovascularization
The Dudley Lab, associated with the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Cancer Biology (MIC), is focused on the tumor microenvironment and mechanisms of tumor neovascularization. We use transgenic tumor models, in vivo lineage tracing strategies, and endothelial cell cultures to explore differentiation and specialization of the tumor vasculature. We are also focused on how endothelial cells, and other cell types found within the tumor microenvironment such as fibroblasts, contribute to the growth, progression, and immune surveillance of solid tumors and their metastases.
