Cancer Biology Program

The goal of the Cancer Biology (CB) Program is to foster research in the molecular mechanisms that define normal and neoplastic cell growth in order to gain new insight into cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The specific aims of the CB Program are:

  1. To elucidate the mechanisms of intracellular signaling pathways and the role of oncogenic and tumor-suppressing genes involved in normal and neoplastic cells
  2. To investigate the functional mechanisms informing tumor cell-stroma interactions in cancer initiation, progression; and metastasis
  3. To uncover the mechanisms of resistance, including signaling molecules and pathways, relevant to drug resistance and cancer treatment.
