The Cell Response and Regulation (CRR) Program works to decipher cellular mechanisms of cancer biology, through transdisciplinary research, providing a foundation for new approaches to clinical issues.
The program’s research focuses on the mechanisms by which cancer cells become transformed and/or progress to the metastatic malignant state.
CRR research is centered around the following three Specific Aims:
- To elucidate mechanisms underlying cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival
- To uncover mechanisms and pathways mediating tumor metastasis
- To understand tumor development and cellular responses to therapy
HCI Cancer Center members enjoy a variety of benefits, including eligibility for leadership roles in the Center, institutional funding opportunities, and scientific/administrative support.
