About the Lab
The Melissa Bondy Lab has a comprehensive research focus along the continuum of cancer prevention and population sciences. Research in the lab focuses on the molecular and genetic epidemiology of nearly all cancers, including breast, brain, colon, esophageal, pancreas, lung, pediatric, ovarian and prostate, and tobacco-related cancers. Additionally, the lab pursues the relationship between cancer and known risk factors in our community, such as infectious agents, diet and obesity, the microbiome, and environmental exposures. Melissa Bondy, PhD, and her team draw from Baylor College of Medicine's Advanced Technology Cores, the diverse portfolio of skills represented in the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center, and team science coalitions from around the Texas Medical Center.
