Todd R. Evans, M.D.
Cell and Developmental Biology in Surgery
Vice Chair for Research
Weill Cornell Medical College
Dr. Todd R. Evans' research seeks to understand the molecular regulation of normal organ development during embryogenesis, and thereby to reveal the underlying genetic programs that, when deregulated, cause developmental defects and organ-based disease throughout life. His lab is primarily focused on hematopoietic and cardiovascular programs, but also other organ systems including liver, gut, and pancreas. Current research goals are to use a developmental biology perspective to develop genetic, pharmacological or cellular therapies to impact diseases including cancer.
