The Markowitz laboratory studies the genetics of colon cancer.
Key questions that we study are:
1. What genes contribute to the growth of colon cancers?
2. What genes cause colon cancer to occur in certain families?
3. How can we detect and diagnose colon cancer while it is in its early and curable stages?
