Welcome to the Palmbos Lab
The goal of our research program is to characterize the molecular drivers of human bladder cancer, develop novel prognostic biomarkers and to identify better therapies for patients with bladder cancer. To better understand the molecular drivers of bladder cancer, we have developed unique preclinical models of bladder cancer including transgenic mouse models drive by expression of the ATDC/TRIM29 oncogene, 3D tumor models and patient derived xenograft systems. We are always open to collaboration. If you are interested in collaborating please email Dr. Palmbos.
