Our lab has the following projects active:
Tumor Cell Survival
Tumors are highly resistant to programmed cell death and to Chemotherapy. How do our drugs work against tumors and how can we improve them? These studies focus on the role of a cellular protein called FAK.
Genomic Analysis of Tumors
Tumors shuffle their DNA, weak cells suffer and the strongest survive. What makes a tumor cell strong?
Repurposing Proteins by Cancer Cells
Dead cells don't migrate. These studies focus on how tumors disrupt their normal "programmed cell death" pathways and use these proteins for other purposes.
In the US, a woman dies of ovarian cancer every 38 minutes. Consider helping us fight this disease.
