Dr. Williams' laboratory research interests center around lung and gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies. They are interested in the molecular biology and genetics of DNA repair and DNA damage response, those pathways which dictate tumor aggressiveness such as invasion and metastasis, and those factors governing response to treatment from chemotherapy, molecularly-targeted agents, and radiation. A major focus of research is in oncogene-mediated radiation resistance and heightened DNA repair mechanisms. Additional interests are in the role of stromal elements and their relationship to tumorigenesis, metastasis, and resistance to therapy, as well as developing a better understanding of the role of caveolar endocytosis and Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) in aggressive neoplasms demonstrating a high degree of Cav-1 overexpression.
