Cancer Biology

Our scientific goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms that define normal and neoplastic cell growth in order to identify and characterize molecules, pathways and processes that are involved in tumor development, growth and progression. We are unified by utilization of molecular, biochemical, genetic, and cell-based approaches to study the underlying biology, molecular biology and biochemistry of tumor cells and their surrounding microenvironments. Collaborative, interdisciplinary, discovery-oriented basic cancer research will identify new targets that can be used for prognostic and therapeutic objectives.
