Cancer Therapeutics


  • This group focuses on the exploitation of the knowledge acquired from the study of cancer formation to develop novel therapeutics.
  • Faculty members in this program interrogate various molecular targets to discover various anti-cancer drugs, and test those drugs in animal models, with the ultimate goal of establishing clinical trials. 
  • Research areas in this program include signaling pathway investigation, medicinal chemistry, natural product manipulation, pharmacology, high throughput screening technology for small molecular discovery, biomarker-driven clinical trial design, pathology, and biostatistical evaluation.
