Award Description: Cancer and congenital malformations occasionally may have a common etiology. We have recently demonstrated that cleft families present a higher incidence of family history of cancer and that AXIN2, a gene that when mutated increases susceptibility to colon cancer, was associated with cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P). This application aims to supplement an active K99 award (NIDCR K99 DE-018413-01A1, Clefts/Craniofacial Anomalies and Cancer Susceptibility, for the purpose of adding technical personnel. The supplement would allow to promote job creation and economic development meanwhile accelerating the pace and achievement of the research proposed in the parent grant.
