Research Summary

The Amelio Lab applies an interdisciplinary approach to understand the mechanisms underlying the development of oral, head, and neck cancers. We are investigating the signaling pathways that drive mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the salivary gland and oral squamous cell carcinoma using a combination of bioinformatics, animal models, and molecular genetic analyses.
