Research Focus of the Lab

The research focus of my lab is to understand how molecular chaperones regulate cell cycle , and how this machinery is disrupted during cancer. Another area of my research is how oncoproteins disrupt chaperone function.

Positions Available

Candidates with their own fellowship are welcome to join my lab
