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.


April 2017: Read about the new NanoLuc-Based Protein-Fragment Complementation Assay developed by our lab.

February 2017: Read about our research and development of OncoPPi, “a focused PPI[protein-protein interaction] resource that links cancer genes into a signaling network fordiscovery of PPI targets and network-implicated tumour vulnerabilities for therapeutic interrogation”.

February 2017: Lab alumni MaKendra Umstead recently received a 2017 Celebrating
Black History Award by WRAL, a local North Carolina news station in Umstead’s homestate. Click here to watch Umstead’s interview and be sure to read about her previous work
in the Fu Lab here.

November 2016: MaKendra Umstead was awarded the first Kharen Fulton Diversity Graduate Award! Read more>>

October 2016: Congratulations to Dr. MaKendra Umstead on defending her thesis and graduating from Emory’s Cancer Biology Ph.D. program!

October 2016: Cindy, Valentina and Yuhong will be presenting posters and representing the Fu Lab at the International Chemical Biology Society meeting in Madison, WI

August 2016: The Fu Lab is happy to welcome our newest graduate student, Sean Doyle, to the lab! He is a MD/Ph.D. student and beginning his first year in the MSP program.
