Primary Faculty: Cancer Biology

Yong Q. Chen, PhD My research focuses on two areas of prostate cancer; (1) genetic basis and lipid signaling in prostate cancer development, and (2) effect of dietary fat on prostate cancer development in genetically predisposed populations.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page

William H. Gmeiner, PhD, MBA  Research in my laboratory is focused on developing novel cytotoxic oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) for treatment of prostate cancer and other malignancies and in understanding the role of DNA structure in carcinogenesis and cancer chemotherapy.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page

Zhennan Gu, PhD  Faculty Page

Steven Kridel, PhD  Research in my lab focuses on understanding the regulation of pathways that control fatty acid synthesis by fatty acid synthase in prostate cancer.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page


George Kulik, PhD  My laboratory is focusing on signal transduction mechanisms that protect prostate cancer cells from apoptosis. This information is necessary to design more effective therapies for advanced prostate cancer and other therapy resistant cancers.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page


Lance D. Miller, PhD  Using genomic technologies such as DNA microarrays, my laboratory investigates the transcriptional dynamics and genomic architectures of primary tumors to uncover novel prognostic biomarkers and mechanisms of disease progression.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page

Boris Pasche, MD, PhD, FACP  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page

Gary G. Schwartz, PhD, MPH, PhD We have suggested that the descriptive epidemiology of prostate cancer, i.e., the increasing risk with age, Black race, and residence at northern latitudes, resemble the descriptive epidemiology of vitamin D deficiency in the elderly.

Ravi Singh, PhD  The focus of my research is the integration of specific clinical applications into the development of nanotechnology-based, multifunctional units designed to diagnose cancer, deliver therapeutic agents, and monitor cancer treatment (so called “theranostic” agents).  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page


Guangchao Sui, PhD  The research in our lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms of the epigenetic regulation of tumorigenesis.  Faculty Page  Laboratory Page

Thad Wadas, PhD  Our research program utilizes the tools of molecular biology, chemistry and radiochemistry to develop targeted agents for cancer detection and therapy.  Faculty Page    Laboratory Page
