Christine Iok In Chio, PhD

Dr. Chio works on pancreatic cancer, which is a particularly devastating and difficult-to-treat disease because of its ability to grow in conditions of high oxidative stress-conditions in which normal cells would not survive. She is evaluating the biological role of oxidative stress in pancreatic cancer development and progression, using both in mouse models of pancreatic cancer as well as human tumor samples. Her work may result in a novel therapeutic approach for this disease.
