Cancer Cell Biology

The Winship Cancer Institute’s Cancer Cell Biology (CCB) Program studies the changes in biological function of human cells as a result of cell transformation.  The CCB program has two main themes: 1) Cell Survival and Death Mechanisms, and 2) Tumor Stroma Interactions.

The CCB Program serves as Winship’s scientific switchboard, a platform for discovery of novel signaling pathways, their biological validation, and an interchange of concepts among the CGE, DDT, and CPC Programs.  CCB labs identified and targeted key molecular pathways involved in a variety of disease site-specific cancers.
