Research & Clinical Interests

The bcl-2 oncogene and its role in apoptosis, mitochondrial biology and bioenergetic metabolism. Utilizes cell culture, transgenic mouse and protein biochemistry approaches for identification of cancer-selective metabolic pathways and discovery of small molecule inhibitors targeting these pathways.
