Welcome to LITE lab! We are taking a multidisciplinary approach to understanding processes of tumor initiation, growth, and spread. We are confident that by embracing the perspectives and technologies of fields ranging from the physical sciences and engineering, to microbiology and biomedicine, we will contribute new ideas and treatments that are desperately needed as traditional therapies continue to fail patients with the most aggressive cancers.
