Cell and Molecular Biology

The Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University seeks to deepen multi-aspect, mechanistic insights into the biological processes relevant to cancer.

The Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program promotes collaborative science focused on the interplay between metabolic and proliferative signaling networks, genetic and epigenetic regulations, and the tumor microenvironment.

Spanning basic and clinical science, the program’s research outcomes include identifying new markers and targets to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

The program has four primary themes:

  1. Cancer Cell Metabolism
  2. Cancer Cell Stress and Survival
  3. Mechanisms of lnvasion and Metastasis
  4. Gene Regulation
