Research Summary

I am an Associate Director of the NYU Cancer Institute, Director of Translational Cancer Research, and Co-director of the Breast Cancer Research Program at NYU School of Medicine. Our research is directed to three major areas: (1) the molecular and genetic understanding of advanced breast cancers and the development of new treatment strategies and therapeutics for advanced breast cancers, focusing particularly on the role of protein synthesis and mTOR kinase regulation; (2) the molecular understanding of gene regulation by ionizing radiation, particularly its ability to regulate protein synthesis and use of this knowledge for development of new cancer treatment strategies; and (3) regulation of the inflammatory response by targeted rapid degradation of inflammatory cytokine mRNAs, and the connection to cancer development and progression.
