Ben Z. Stanger, MD, PhD
Hanna Wise Professor of Medicine

“Epithelial Plasticity In Vivo: From Chromatin Biology to Protein Trafficking”


Dr. Stanger is Hanna Wise Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. His laboratory seeks to understand molecular and cellular pathogenesis of disorders of the digestive tract: liver disease, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer. Active areas of study include: 1) exploring the extent to which cellular plasticity plays a role in cancer and liver regeneration; 2) understanding how tumor cells mold their microenvironment; and 3) defining the molecular mechanisms of cancer cell invasion and metastasis.
