Cancer Genetics and Signal Transduction


The following GGR laboratories are interested in cancer genetics and signal transduction

Gerd Blobel

Hematopoiesis, gene expression, transcription factors, chromatin

Douglas Epstein
Regulation of Sonic hedgehog signaling in development and disease
Russ Carstens
Study of the molecular mechanisms of alternative splicing.
Donna L. George
Our research interests are focused broadly on the molecular pathways governing cellular growth control and their disruption during the initiation and progression of human cancers.
Maureen Murphy p53 tumor suppressor, HSP70 chaperone, autophagy, programmed cell death. Keywords: Cancer Genetics and Signal Transduction, Genetics of diabetes and metabolism, Animal modeling of human disease
Doris Stoffers
Transcription factors and signal transduction; Embryonic development and adult regeneration of the endocrine pancreas; Relationship of defects in these pathways to the pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus, a disease caused by a deficiency in the production or action of insulin.
Doris Wagner
Molecular mechanisms controling developmental transitions in response to environmental and endogenous cues.
Meera Sundaram
Regulation and targets of Ras/ERK signaling in C. elegans
Mitchell Weiss
Developmental Hematopoiesis concentrating on red blood cell and megakaryocyte lineages.
