Robert Coffey, M.D. Vanderbilt University
Dr. Coffey is an international leader in the study of EGFR and its ligand in epithelia development, which contributed to the understanding of gastrointestinal neoplasia. His study of EGFR also led to the characterization of extracellular vesicles such as exosomes, a novel and potent means of cell-cell communication.
