Transriptional & post-translational mechanisms regulating apoptosis in cytokine receptor signalling

Project Description

This project explores the way in which molecules called growth factors keep cells alive. These mechanisms are often functioning abnormally in cancer cells, giving them a survival advantage over normal cells. This work explores this survival advantage in cancer cells and ways to treat it.
