Welcome to the Zhao Lab
Our laboratory is interested in understanding the diverse signaling pathways and networks regulating essential basic cellular processes in normal and cancer cells. We use a multi-pronged approach in which science and technology from molecular biology, chemical biology, genetics, systems biology, next-generation sequencing, nanotechnology, immunotherapy, and novel mouse models of human cancer converge. In this way, we not only gain a better understanding of the alterations involved in tumor initiation, progression, recurrence and metastasis, but we also identify novel targets and develop new therapeutic regimens. See Research for more details.
