Luis Parada

Professor

The Parada lab uses genetically engineered mouse models to recapitulate and study human disease. These mouse strains are used to understand the natural history of tumors of the nervous system, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST), neurofibromas, and other diseases associated with neurofibromatosis (NF1). We seek to develop mouse cancer models based on concrete hypotheses and to rapidly transfer findings for validation in human cancer samples.
