Current Studies

Saccomanno Research Institute Projects:

  • Identifying microRNA biomarkers for non-small cell lung cancer
  • The role of mitochondrial dysfunction and dynamics in lung cancer
  • Isolation and characterization of self-renewing lung cancer cell lines and comparison of their primary tumor of origin
  • Comparison of normal and lung cancer cell lines in culture: a model system for discovery
  • Saccomanno archive curation

Continuing in the spirit of Dr. Geno Saccomanno, SRI maintains collaborations with St. Mary's Hospital-affiliated and local physicians, and national and international research groups to develop basic, clinical and translational projects to further the advancement of cancer diagnostics, treatment and intervention.
