Current Research Interests:

My current research involves the investigation of a transcription factor required for the proper function and arrangement of the pancreas, Mist1. In the absence of Mist1 with oncogenic K-RAS, the pancreas suffers from a high rate of acinar-to-ductal metaplasia, a precursor to pancreatic cancer. With this in mind, my focus is to determine what Mist1 is doing to maintain acinar cell differentiation by investigating putative Mist1 targets. The goal is to give insights into the development and maintainence of the pancreas as well as identify potential markers for pancreatic cancer disease progression.
