The Cell Response and Regulation (CRR) Program’s research provides new insights into basic mechanisms and cancer pathways that may have clinical applications:

  • Target identification
  • Chemoprevention
  • Drug discovery
  • Biomarker development

The CRR Program works to decipher cellular mechanisms involved in cancer in these theme areas:

  • Cell turnover, including control and dysregulation of cell division and cell death, as well as stem cell biology and its role in tumor-initiating cells
  • Aberrant signaling in cancer, including mechanisms of drug resistance
  • Mechanisms involved in metastasis, including cell motility in cancer

Program Membership

HCI Cancer Center members enjoy a variety of benefits, including eligibility for leadership roles in the Center, institutional funding opportunities, and scientific/administrative support.
