(Includes Name, Title, Research Interests)
Neurosurgery/Cell and Developmental Biology
Research Interests:
Develop novel therapies for the malignant brain tumors based on depletion of cancer stem like cells.

 

Internal Medicine/Human Genetics
Research Interests:

Cancer genetics, gastrointestinal cancer, oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, beta-catenin, Wnt signaling, developmental biology, CDX2, E-cadherin.

Neurology
Research Interests:

The role of growth factors in the pathogenesis and treatment of neurologic disorders.

Pathology
Research Interests:
DNA Repair and Genomic Stability in Mammals. We study how DNA repair prevents cancer, controls development of the immune system, and ensures proper overall mammalian development.

 

Cell and Developmental Biology
Research Interests:

Regulation of signal transduction by the conserved protein kinase mTOR, the mammalian target of rapamycin.

Research Interests:

Our research focuses on studying retinal diseases and their mechanisms, in order to develop new treatments to prevent or reverse associated vision loss. A major focus in our lab is the development of strategies to treat retinal neurodegenerations, including diabetic retinopathy. One of our objectives is to investigate the function and regulation of crystallin proteins in the adaptive responses of retinal cells during chronic disease states such as diabetes.
