Our research seeks to understand signal transduction pathways that control cell survival and death in normal and cancer cells. Based on the unraveled signaling mechanisms and tumor-addicted pathways, we employ the chemical biology approach to develop novel strategies for mechanistic understanding of tumorigenesis, small molecule drug discovery, and translational studies.
