Mowery Lab Overview

Yvonne Mowery in the lab

The Mowery Lab utilizes genetically engineered mouse models, patient-derived samplesĀ and molecular biology techniques to study head and neck cancer development and progression, as well as the interplay between radiation therapy and the immune system in sarcoma and head and neck cancer. We have a particular interest in understanding the molecular underpinnings of radiation resistance in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and immune dysregulation in the tumor microenvironment. Our overarching goal is to translate scientific discoveries from the bench to the bedside to advance the care and improve the quality of life for patients with cancer.
