Cancer Biology

Mentors in this group focus on cell biology and metastasis; cancer genetics; and tumor immunology and compliment activities in the Microbiology and Immunology Mentor Group. Cancer Biology mentors generally hold appointments on the graduate faculty in Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology and in Oral Biology. Mentors study cell biology and metastasis, biochemical signaling pathways, cancer genetics, and tumor immunology. Mentors also focus on the development of new cancer therapies, including developing new inhibitors of angiogenesis, improving immune-based therapies, and studying novel compounds that can inhibit growth and/or survival of malignant tumors.
