Dr. David Wong's laboratory spearheads the use of genome-wide technologies to harness the diagnostic and genomic information pertaining to the pathogenesis of oral and head and neck cancer development. In particular, he and his colleagues are focusing on the genomic and proteomic determinants of oral precancer progression. Using a patient-based genome-wide approach, the researchers are harnessing the genomic and proteomic determinants that distinguish progressing from non-progressing oral pre-cancers.
