Weber Laboratory

Faculty Award recipient, George Weber, Emerging Entrepreneurial Achievement Award.

Dr. Georg F. Weber has made major contributions to metastasis research by discovering the interaction between the molecules osteopontin and CD44, by defining the physiologic role of metastasis genes as stress response genes, and by identifying a gene expression core signature of metastases. While his laboratory continues to address fundamental questions, other ongoing research seeks new venues for diagnosis and therapy of cancer progression.
