Welcome to the Stupack Lab

Dwayne Stupack, PhD 

Principle Investigator

 

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. 

    Cancer Research                    

In the US, a woman dies of ovarian cancer every 38 minutes. Consider helping us fight this disease.
