Mission & Goals

The goals of the Cell Culture Laboratory at LECOM are twofold. The first facet of our research focuses on studies revealing the roles of the carbonic anhydrase isozymes in homeostasis and metabolism, and their relevance to disease.

The second arm of our laboratory focuses on the effects of lycopene on prostate cancer. Our main objective has been to establish inhibition of prostate cancer cell (PC-3) growth with lycopene, a plant carotenoid found in high concentrations, most notably in tomatoes.
