Chronic inflammation can pose a risk of colon cancer for patients with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. The model could serve as a conceptual framework for further study of early-stage colon cancer. Dr. Martin has co-authored many articles in well-respected publications, including Journal of the American College of Surgeons, BMC Cancer, Journal of Physical Chemistry B and BioMed Research International.
