Dysregulation of Apoptosis
United States

Apoptosis (programmed cell death) is a key process in cancer development and progression. The ability of cancer cells to avoid apoptosis and continue to proliferate is one of the fundamental hallmarks of cancer and is a major target of cancer therapy development. Developing novel molecules that promote apoptosis by targeting both the intrinsic and extrinsic apoptotic pathways advances our understanding of the mechanisms behind tumor cell prolifer
