Chung Lab

  • Three dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of tissues and cells to identify the molecular mechanisms underlying tumor-stromal interaction promoting prostate cancer progression
  • Coevolution of cancer and stroma during cancer progression
  • Cancer plasticity through epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the ability of cancer cells to assume stem cell and neuroendocrine (NE) properties are studied to understand cancer invasion and metastasis. We identified the presence of "cancer metastasis initiating cells," which recruit bystander cancer cells to form tumors in mouse skeleton and soft tissues
  • Near-infrared fluorescent dye for cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Technology development and improvements in the detection of circulating tumor cells, single cell genome sequencing, and multiplex quantum dot fluorescent imaging
  • Novel therapeutic targeting of cancer cells and their associated stroma
