Defining Critical Targets in Cancer Cells

Our lab is focused on defining critical targets in cancer cells that can become the focus for therapeutic intervention. Because of the high cost of developing new therapies, it is essential to first identify which genetic alterations can be productively targeted. We are concentrating our initial efforts on using a genetic approach in tumors that are refractory to conventional therapies including metastatic melanoma and glioblastoma. We plan to further validate these targets using pharmacological inhibitors of clinical importance.
