Dr. Daniel W. Rosenberg obtained his Doctoral Degree in Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Michigan. He began his research career in molecular pharmacology at The Rockefeller University in the Laboratory of Attallah Kappas, where he attained the rank of Assistant Professor. After moving to the University of Connecticut in 1991, he was appointed as the HealthNet, Inc. Chair in Cancer Biology and Professor of Medicine in the School of Medicine. He has developed an active research program that focuses on the pathogenesis of gastrointestinal diseases and has also established a translational research program in Colon Cancer Prevention, serving as its Director. The long‐term goals of the Program are to improve the early detection of cancer, develop population‐based studies of cancer risk and develop effective chemoprevention strategies for the treatment of high‐risk individuals. Dr. Rosenberg has published a number of recent papers that define the epigenetics of early human neoplasia in the colon, as well as the mutational, transcriptional and microbiome profiles that are associated with neoplastic progression. Research in the Rosenberg Lab extends across a wide range of research topics in colon cancer biology, applying sophisticated mouse genetic cancer models to further our understanding of carcinogenic mechanisms and to identify novel chemoprevention strategies. He is particularly interested in how nutrition influences cancer risk via changes to the microbiome, thereby affecting colonic homeostasis both in healthy and diseased tissues. As part of his nutritional-cancer approach, his lab has a particular interest in how prostaglandins and one-carbon metabolism may be therapeutically targeted for providing durable cancer prevention.


Dr. Daniel Rosenberg’s talk will focus on the use of laser capture microdissection to characterize the stromal-epithelial interactions that drive early colonic neoplasia in humans and mice. He will also present how LCM can be used to capture small numbers of colonic crypt stem cells defined by specific immunological markers and how these stem cell populations acquire somatic mutations and respond to specific environmental challenges (microbiome, inflammatory).
