Meeting Agenda/Notes

Gastric cancer usually develops within a cascade of pre-cancerous metaplasia to cancerous dysplasia and adenocarcinoma and oncogenic Kras amplification and overexpression are associated with gastric carcinogenesis.  The dysplastic stage is especially considered a key transition state between pre-cancer and cancer, however the cellular plasticity or tumorigenic potential of the dysplastic cell lineages remain largely unknown.  Our group has recently identified dysplastic stem cell populations in active-Kras driven mouse dysplasia and this study is to investigate functional roles of the dysplastic stem cells during the cancer transition.
