The Shen Lab is also a member of the Tumor Biology and Microenvironment Program of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute (KCI) – a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer center.
Supported by the State-of-the-art facilities such as proteomics, genomics, flow cytometry, and imaging cores at the Wayne State University and KCI, the Shen Lab aims to understand the mechanisms underlying cancer metastasis and treatment resistance by focusing on tumor microenvironment (TME). The Lab is also trying to developnovel TME remodeling therapeutic strategies to potentially reduce cancer mortality by using multiple animal systems,including Genetically Engineered Mouse Models (GEMMs), patient-derived xenograft (PDX), multiple experimental metastases models, and syngeneic tumor models.
