Christopher Weghorst, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program at OSUCCC – James, where his work has earned him national recognition as a leader in molecular and comparative carcinogenesis research.

In particular, he focuses on genetic susceptibility to cancer, food-based cancer prevention, and translational assessment of prevention approaches in clinical trials.

One of his recent studies indicates that targeting the pro-inflammatory cytokine macrophage migration inhibitory factor could be a promising strategy in oral cancer prevention or therapy.
