Robert Gryfe, PhD, MD, FRCSC

My research interest is the clinical significance of somatic and inherited genetic alterations in colorectal cancer. These include the relationship of genetic events to the risk of developing cancer, cancer prognosis and response to treatment. In addition, I am currently pursuing chemical genetic approaches for development of novel cancer therapies.
