Analyzing the Adenoma-Carcinoma sequence in Colorectal Cancer

Principal Investigators: Dr. Maza Itay

Our research is focused on the role of metabolic and epigenetic dynamics in gastrointestinal malignancy carcinogenesis, and colorectal cancer in particular. We attempt to map and integrate methylation alterations and metabolome dynamics with clinical and pathological milestones of the adenoma-carcinoma sequence in colorectal cancer. Thereby, we aim to develop prognostic biomarkers and early cancer diagnostic methods for colorectal cancer screening
