Specialized in precision medicine and systems biology, the Shen lab integrates engineering, computational and biological techniques to study cancer, stem cells, microbiota and the nervous system in the gut. Ongoing projects include metabolic and epigenetic reprogramming of cancer metastasis, stem cell and organoid technology, microbiome-host-disease interaction, humanized immune cancer models, intravital imaging, CRISPR/dCAS9 epigenetic screening, and peripheral neuromodulation. This multidisciplinary work has been instrumental in initiating several translational clinical trials in precision cancer therapy.
