Thank you for your interest in colon cancer research.

The Molecular Genetics Laboratory of Johns Hopkins Oncology Center is dedicated to the analysis of the genetics of human cancer with a particular emphasis on human colon and rectal cancer. Human colorectal cancer arises as the result of a series of genetic changes. This laboratory has focused on identifying these differences, determining their consequences and utilizing them to improve the management of human cancer. This page provides links to web pages containing information that may be helpful to both cancer researchers and the general public.
