Dr. Tzatsos’ work in cancer epigenetics focuses on characterizing enzymes that allow gastrointestinal and blood cancers to proliferate in affected patients. His team develops genetically engineered mouse models that recapitulate molecular changes driving tumor growth and development. These animal models will improve our understanding on how these tumors grow and metastasize and will also provide a platform for drug screening and development.
