Dr. Salcedo's research focuses on the role of chronic inflammation in the promotion of cancer. She is using several genetic and chemical models of skin and colon carcinogenesis to elucidate the protective and detrimental effects of innate immune responses in the induction and subsequent outgrowth of tumors.

Areas of Expertise

1) chronic inflammation, 2) genetic and chemical models
