Overview

The overall goal of the Cell and Molecular Biology of Carcinogenesis Laboratory of Nicole R. Murray, Ph.D., at Mayo Clinic in Florida is to understand the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic cancer initiation and progression in order to identify better therapeutic targets to more effectively treat pancreatic cancer.

To accomplish this goal, the Cell and Molecular Biology of Carcinogenesis Laboratory uses a combination of cellular and molecular biology techniques and transgenic and tumor mouse models to identify, characterize and inhibit the signaling pathways that may contribute to the progression of pancreatic cancer.
