Meet Our Scientists
Ryan Moy, MD, PhD

Dr. Moy is focusing on key genes and pathways that control metastasis of colorectal cancer to the liver. Dr. Moy’s research could potentially lead to new treatment strategies that can block or delay metastatic progression of colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal malignancies. Understanding this process at the molecular level has the potential to impact patient survival.
