Cancer Research

Cancer research at RFUMS involves the use of an array of multidisciplinary approaches to study the:

  • Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transforming protein and its role in manipulating cellular signaling pathways involved in tumor formation (Note: EBV is associated with Burkitt’s lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, as well as certain types of Hodgkin disease and gastric cancers) (David Everly)
  • Arachidonic acid pathway in KSHV pathogenesis (Neelam Sharma-Walia)
  • Hepatitis C viral infection induced inflammation and liver oncogenesis (Gulam Waris)
  • Compartmentalization of the nucleus as it contributes to genome function and regulates genome organization in cancer (Mirek Dundr)
