The role of the Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor (AHR) in colorectal cancer and intestinal biology.
Clefts of the lip and palate are among the most common human birth defects, yet causative factors remain elusive for most cases. I use the mouse to study genetic and environmental factors contributing to the pathogenesis of these orofacial clefts.

I am interested in understanding how cancer stem cells promote therapy resistance in estrogen receptor alpha-positive mammary carcinomas.
We are interested in the impact of environmental endocrine disruptors like phthalates on prostate diseases, both benign and neoplastic.
