Study of the environmental and genetic risk factors associated with liver cancer and cholangiocarcinoma
The Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology participates in the integrated research program of the Chulabhorn Research Institute on Liver cancer through the study of 1) Environmental and life styles, and genetic risk factors of HCC and CCA. 2) Molecular mechanisms associated with liver cancer and cholangiocarcinoma development. 3) Molecular signaling underlying cholangiocarcinoma progression and therapeutic opportunities and 4) Identification of novel targeted molecules as potential therapeutic targets for cholangiocarcinoma in Thai patients.
Research described above will lead to identification of important etiological factors and development of more targeted policy measures for prevention and early detection of liver cancer and cholangiocarcinoma.
