Presented by
Sean Morrison, MD, PhD, BSc
Director
Children’s Medical Center Research Institute (CRI)
UT Southwestern

Dr. Sean Morrison's lab seeks to better understand the mechanisms that maintain adult tissues and how cancer cells hijack these mechanisms to enable the formation of tumors. To do this, they compare the processes by which stem cells and cancer cells replicate themselves. A better understanding of these mechanisms offers enormous potential to yield new regenerative medicine and cancer therapies. By promoting these mechanisms in the context of tissue injury, his lab can stimulate regeneration and by inhibiting these mechanisms in the context of cancer, they hope to develop anticancer therapies.
