The overarching goal of our research program is to understand the mechanisms of tissue regeneration and tumorigenesis by employing genetically engineered mice and organoids. Our recent investigations have aimed to address two critical questions: Is tumor cell plasticity a therapeutic vulnerability of cancer? Can manipulating cell plasticity promote tissue regeneration, or even prevent tissue damage?
