Welcome to the Wood Laboratory

The Wood Laboratory is located in the Department of Pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Our goal is to characterize the molecular alterations that underlie multi-step tumorigenesis, with a particular focus on those alterations that mediate clinically relevant transitions. Much of our work focuses on pancreatic cancer, though we study a variety of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary neoplasms in our work to understand how a cell becomes malignant.
