Investigator / Contact Person Richard Cote

Research Focus

Dr. Cote's research is focused on the elucidation of cellular and molecular pathways of tumor progression and response to therapy. He has special interests in micrometastases detection and characterization and in the pathology of breast and genitourinary tumors. His laboratory is also focused on technology development, where Dr. Cote and his colleagues have developed immunohistochemical and molecular methods, such as antigen retrieval. Most recently, Dr. Cote and his colleagues at the University of Southern California, Caltech and UC Berkeley have developed nanoscale technologies for cancer diagnostic applications, including bionanosensors for the detection of serum tumor markers, and technologies for the capture and characterization of circulating tumor cells.
