CANCER

Overview:

Dr. Agrawal’s lab is devoted to the study of the genetics and molecular diagnostics of head and neck cancer. The group has described the genomic landscape of head & neck squamous cell carcinoma, esophageal cancer and medullary thyroid cancer, and has developed assays using tumor DNA as a biomarker in saliva and plasma. His lab’s research is focused on the application of cancer genetics to design diagnostic approaches to reduce morbidity and mortality from head and neck cancer.
