Focus of Work

Bio

The primary thrust of our research team has focused on studies to identify the basic biological processes that regulate adaptation of malignant tumor cells to stressful environments, such as those produced by anti-cancer drugs, and thereby permit their survival in the presence of agents that would normally kill them. Understanding these processes will help cancer researchers develop novel chemotherapeutic strategies. Our group has directed our recent attention to the understanding of cancer cell...[Read full text]The primary thrust of our research team has focused on studies to identify the basic biological processes that regulate adaptation of malignant tumor cells to stressful environments, such as those produced by anti-cancer drugs, and thereby permit their survival in the presence of agents that would normally kill them. Understanding these processes will help cancer researchers develop novel chemotherapeutic strategies. Our group has directed our recent attention to the understanding of cancer cell behavior and in particular on the molecular basis underlying resistance of neuroblastoma cells to chemotherapy.[Shorten text]
