Investigative Pathology Group
Molecular & Epigenetic Mechanisms of Carcinogenesis
Robert C. Sills, D.V.M., Ph.D.
Chief, Cellular & Molecular Pathology Branch and Acting Molecular Pathology Group Leader
The Investigative Pathology Group is the newest member of the Cellular & Molecular Pathology Branch (CMPB). The group will use murine models to determine the cause and eventual spread of cancer in humans.
Major areas of research:
- Molecular and epigenetic mechanisms of carcinogenesis
- Pathology of genetically engineered mouse (GEM) models of human cancer
- Rodent models of human breast cancer
