cancer; cell signaling; cell signaling pathways; cellular junction proteins; chemical biology; degenerative diseases; functional genomics; terminal differentiation; tumor quiescence; tumor senescence We are interested in using chemical biology and functional genomics to investigate cell signaling pathways that are involved in the regulation of stem cell fate and tumorigenesis, as well as essential cellular functions such as terminal differentiation, senescence, and quiescence. Our goal is to discover novel therapeutic targets and agents for the treatment of degenerative diseases and cancers.
