Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program

The Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program is a collaborative group of more than 25 scientific members of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University. The members represent many Departments and Sections in Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and on the Reynolda campus. 

The goals of the Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program are to 1) determine the contribution of biochemical pathways to tumor development and therapeutic response; 2) develop novel nanotechnology and imaging strategies to improve cancer therapy; and 3) generate new hypotheses and translate findings toward human interventions.

Our research is primarily funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Funding also comes from other Institutes within the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the American Cancer Society and the National Science Foundation. The last source of funding is from individual donations.

There are four research themes within the Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program:  

  • Cellular Metabolism
  • Redox Modulation
  • Genomic Maintenance
  • Bio-engineering
