Edouard Azzam, Ph.D.

My laboratory studies the effects and underlying mechanisms of low dose ionizing radiation in normal human cells, with particular interest in the radiation-induced bystander effect and the radiation-induced adaptive response.
Bin Tian
Bin Tian, Ph.D.

Our lab studies post-transcriptional gene regulation using computational and molecular biology approaches. We are particularly interested in mechanisms and consequences of alternative cleavage and polyadenylation in cell differentiation and cancer.
birge

Raymond Birge, Ph.D.

Cellular actions of viral oncogenes and cellular proto-oncogenes, and how these gene products function and transduce intracellular signals

Christopher Fritton, Ph.D.

We study how mechanical (exercise) and hormonal (estrogen) signals affect cellular and tissue repair mechanisms in bone and bone marrow.

Utz Herbig, Ph.D.

Our lab is studying whether telomere induced senescence contributes to tumor suppression and organismal aging in mammals.
Howell Roger Howell, Ph.D.

The research in my laboratory focuses on the biological effects of radioactive materials as they relate to both radiation protection and radiation therapy.

Sergei Kotenko, Ph.D.

Research in my lab is aimed to advance our knowledge of the complex role played by various cytokines in the regulation of the immune response to and in the pathogenesis of a number of diseases including cancer

Levison Steven Levison, Ph.D.

The overall goal of my research program is to better understand the signals that regulate the proliferation and differentiation of the stem cells in the central nervous system.
Hong Li Hong Li, Ph.D.

One of the goals of my laboratory is to develop and optimize mass spectrometry technologies to study the role of protein post-translational modifications and protein-protein interactions on cell function.
Michael Mathews

Michael Mathews, Ph.D.

We study protein synthesis and the control of gene expression during virus infection and in cancer cells, with a focus on pharmacological interventions.

Elizabeth Moran, Ph.D.

We study the molecular mechanisms that regulate the different patterns of gene expression seen in cancer cells compared with their normal counterparts.
Rogers Melissa B. Rogers, Ph.D.

We study the transcriptional and post-transcriptional processes that control BMP2 levels and BMP signaling during normal development and in tumors.

Ian Whitehead, Ph.D.

Our laboratory conducts research in the field of mammalian signal transduction, with a particular interest in small G proteins and their contribution to human cancer.
Robert Wieder, M.D., Ph.D.

Our laboratory studies the mechanisms of dormancy and resistance to chemotherapy in breast cancer cells that metastasize to the bone marrow.
Wood Teresa Wood, Ph.D.

A major focus of my laboratory is in determining how hormones and peptide growth factors interact to promote growth, survival and differentiation of breast epithelial cells.
