Summary
Brief summary
The objective is to develop an organotypic model to assess the effects of obesity on the
expression and methylation status of estrogen-responsive genes in endometrial cancer. Omental
fat samples will be removed from participants during surgery and these fat samples will be
used in laboratory analyses.
