Tissue Acquisition and Repository for Gastrointestinal and Hepatic Systems (TARGHETS)
Completion of the proposed studies will correlate the specific genes, proteins, nucleic acids or bacterial species with gastrointestinal, pancreato-biliary and hepatology disorders, including but not limited to cancer. A secondary point will be to determine whether specific biomarkers found in bodily fluids or tissue predict qualitative and quantitative changes in metabolic pathways.
