Focus of Work
We're devoted to understanding the cellular events that influence the aggressiveness of breast tumors, and are currently focused on the following areas:
(1) Mechanisms of tumor maintenance and progression medicated by proto-oncogenes (i.e., MYC transcription factor, PIM family of serine/threonine kinases, etc), their activators and effectors, and tumor microenvironment.
(2) Biology and therapeutic targetability of novel molecular factors that determine patient clinical outcome.
