Contact Pamela Norton


Dr. Pamela Norton is an associate professor in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at Drexel University College of Medicine, and associate director of the Drexel Institute for Biotechnology and Virology Research. Dr. Norton received his Ph.D. from Tufts University in 1986. Dr. Norton lab members are investigating the causes and consequences of hyperfucosylation of many liver-derived glycoproteins that appear in the circulation of individuals with HCC. A second HCC-related change in glycosylation is an increase in the production of highly branched structures in tumor but not nearby non-tumor tissue. The roles of these altered glycoforms are as yet poorly understood, but they represent potentially important biomarkers for early detection of disease.
