Research Abstract

Our laboratory is building on the unique experimental attributes of the telomerase deficient mouse to develop a lung cancer model that is driven by mechanisms underlying the genesis of human lung cancer. A physiologic mouse model of lung cancer may be developed by exposing the telomerase deficient mice with shortened telomeres to chronic tobacco smoke: this will accelerate lung epithelial cell turnover and promote genome wide mutagenesis. Once validated, this model will be used to examine the role of telomerase activation during carcinogenesis, and as a tool for novel lung cancer gene discovery.
