Xue-Yan He Lab: Conquering Stress in Cancer

Understanding the “Stressed” Tumor Microenvironment

About the Lab

Our Goal

Advancing knowledge of the mechanisms responsible for colorectal tumor progression,
with a specific focus on Stress
and its influence on the Tumor Microenvironment.

Current Projects

  1. Determine whether and how stress alters the gut homeostasis
  2. Evaluate the effects of stress-induced Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs) on the microenvironment of colorectal cancer (CRC) and its liver metastasis.
  3. Determine how stress-induced locoregional neuron-tumor interactions affect CRC progression.
