Yves Chabu, PhD Headhost

Assistant Professor Biological Sciences
University of Missouri


Dr. Chabu received his PhD at the University of Oregon. He did his Post-doctoral work and Fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine where, using a Drosophila tumor model, he uncovered tumor-tumor and tumor-host cells interaction mechanisms promoting tumor overgrowth. Dr. Chabu is an Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia and the Scientific Director of the Cancer Research Center, a non-profit research organization in Columbia Missouri. His laboratory at the University of Missouri works on understanding how tissue structural landscapes interact with genetic alterations and on cell-cell cooperation growth control mechanisms during animal development and tumor progression
