Assistant Professor of Radiology (Cancer Early Detection-Canary Center)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research focuses on understanding fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying cancer development. Currently, we study signaling cascades initiated by cell surface receptors which are involved in: 1) the early event of prostate cancer initiation and 2) regulation of the transition from indolent to metastatic disease. The long term goal of our laboratory is to improve the stratification of indolent from aggressive prostate cancer and aid the development of better therapeutic strategies for the advanced disease.
Additionally, we are interested in understanding molecular mechanism that govern the self-renewal activity of adult stem cells and cancer stem cells. We use molecular biology techniques, cell culture based adult stem cell assays, in vivo tissue regeneration models of cancer.
Uday Kumar Sukumar
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI strongly believe that the toughest challenges on the face of the earth is often addressed by the strengths of inter-disciplinary science. In sight of such promises, I specialized in the field of biotechnology and nanotechnology and thrive on research at the crossroads of these two emerging fields of science. Over the course of my research, I have learnt diverse techniques and procedures of diagnostic and therapeutic nanomaterial synthesis, characterization and bioevaluation (invitro & invivo).
