Research

Cancer has affected just about everyone in some way.  Research in my lab focuses on lessening the adverse effects of two commonly used chemotherapeutic agents, docetaxel and doxorubicin, and improving treatment and quality of life for cancer patients.  Students working in the lab will work with a specific enzyme, Malate Dehydrogenase, and discover how inhibition of this enzyme can help the cancer patients.
