Welcome to Howitt Lab

The goal of our lab is to better understand molecular features of tumors and their precancers that better inform diagnostic classification Identification of diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers. We strive to further our understanding of the complex biology underlying initiation and progression of diseases, leading to improved detection, prevention, and treatment approaches, and spatial and single cell studies compatible with archival FFPE tissues.
