Using bioinformatics and epidemiologic approaches, Zhifu Sun, M.D., studies disease development mechanisms, early diagnosis and prognosis biomarkers, and new targets for personalized medicine. Dr. Sun works on both cancer and noncancer diseases, including lung cancer, GI cancers, and autoimmune disorders such as Crohn's disease, primary biliary cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis.
