About Meng Lab

The mission in the Meng Lab is to:

  • Develop a better understanding of how fundamental alterations to cell polarity contribute towards development of invasive disease in kidney cancer
  • Identify links between cell polarity alterations and disease aggressiveness to help select patients that may benefit from targeted treatment that maximizes long term kidney function while simultaneously minimizing risk of metastatic disease
  • Understand how prostate cancer focal therapy affects the remaining prostatic microenvironment to help us select patients who will benefit from focal treatments without compromising long term cancer control
  • Identify post treatment imaging characteristics of early prostate cancer recurrence to maximize our ability to rescue treatment failures with repeat focal therapy rather than proceeding to radical treatment
