Welcome to the Cancer Drug Research Laboratory

Cancer drug research has been aided tremendously by the recent identification of the role of several kinases in signal transduction pathways involved in the progression of many cancers including several types of leukemias, prostate, ovarian, brain, breast and lung carcinomas. The emergence of novel inhibitors of these kinases in phase I, II and III clinical trials against cancer is indicative of the importance of receptor-mediated signaling in modern therapeutic interventions against cancer. The primary objective of our laboratory is to develop new models designed to enhance the efficacy of signal transduction inhibitors in the treatment of refractory tumours.
