Empowering Normal Cells Against Cancer

Presenters:
Vivek Rangnekar, PhD, Professor

Alfred Cohen, MD, Endowed Chair in Oncology Research
Associate Director of Transdisciplinary Collaboration
Co-Leader, Cancer Cell Biology and Signaling Research Program, Markey Cancer Center

Dr. Vivek M. Rangnekar’s laboratory studies the molecular cross-talk between oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, in an effort to tilt the balance in favor of tumor suppressor function. The strategy is to utilize the inherent strengths of the tumor against itself, to specifically target cell survival mechanisms that are common to diverse cancers, while leaving the normal host cells unharmed.
