UNDERSTANDING THE INTERSECTION BETWEEN WOUND HEALING AND TUMORIGENESIS

The long-term goal of the Lee laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie epithelial wound healing and tumorigenesis. The regeneration of normal tissue and the cultivation of tumors share common pathways, such as migration, proliferation, and differentiation or lack of. By studying and identifying the innate processes involved in both, this knowledge can be harnessed towards the development of therapeutic interventions for diseases affecting the ocular surface.
