The Zetter Research Laboratory is dedicated to research on the biology of cancer. We are located at Boston Children's Hospital and are affiliated with Harvard Medical School.

The principal interests of the laboratory are:

  • the mechanisms used by cancer cells to spread or metastasize to distant sites
  • the genetic, molecular and cellular changes that occur as tumors undergo progression from benign to aggressive
  • the development of new markers for the diagnosis and prognosis of human cancers
  • the development of novel therapeutic treatments for metastatic human cancers

The laboratory consists of about one dozen investigators, including post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, medical students, undergraduate students and visiting faculty. Our research is supported by grants from government agencies, private foundations, biomedical companies and by the generous support of individual donors.
