Our research is at the emerging interface of chemistry and biology by using chemical tools to dissect the signaling pathways implicated in cancer development and maintenance. A particular focus in the lab is to develop chemical tools and potential cancer therapeutics for targets that are not well understood. Synopses of two ongoing projects are listed below:
