The Molecular Genetics and Carcinogenesis Section conducts studies using human epithelial cells to assess: activation of proto-oncogenes by chemical and physical carcinogens; inactivation and dysregulation of tumor suppressor genes by chemical and physical carcinogens; and direct and indirect mechanisms of genotoxicity caused by chemical and physical carcinogens.
