Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program

The Cancer Biology and Biochemistry (CBB) Program is a collaborative group of 28 scientific members of the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center. The members represent many Departments and Sections in Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, the WFU Reynolda campus, and the VT-WFU School of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering. 

The Goals of the CBB Program are to understand how biochemistry shapes cancer cell origin and to translate these findings towards human interventions, in collaboration with the Clinical Research Program, by 1) determining how specific biochemical pathways affect tumor initiation and development; and 2) developing novel therapeutic strategies to improve cancer therapy.

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 three research themes within the Cancer Biology and Biochemistry Program:  

  • Cellular Metabolism
  • Redox Modulation
  • Genomic Integrity
