Our Science – Jessup Website
John M. Jessup, M.D.
The focus of Dr. Jessup's research effort currently is on cancer stem cells (CSC) in colorectal carcinoma that give rise to liver metastases. The major interest is in the role of pluripotency transcription factors in regulating quiescence, differentiation and metastasis by putative CSC. An important related scientific interest is in the mechanisms by which metastatic precursor cells survive toxic drugs or host microenvironments and approaches to ablate that resistance.
