    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Agrawal’s lab is devoted to the study of the genetics and molecular diagnostics of head and neck cancer. The group has described the genomic landscape of head & neck squamous cell carcinoma, esophageal cancer and medullary thyroid cancer, and has developed assays using tumor DNA as a biomarker in saliva and plasma. His lab’s research is focused on the application of cancer genetics to design diagnostic approaches to reduce morbidity and mortality from head and neck cancer.
