Studying Genes & Pathways of Familial Colorectal Cancers

The Burt-Neklason lab is focused on studying genes and pathways involved in familial colorectal cancers syndromes. This includes investigation of the:

  • genetics and phenotypes of known inherited syndromes,
  • gene discovery efforts in large Utah pedigrees without known genetic etiology,
  • characterization of genetic and environmental modifiers, and
  • identification of molecular (mRNA) signatures and pathways involved in cancer syndromes.
