Research Interests:

Our long term goal is the research and development of heat shock protein-based therapies to be used alone or in combination with current therapies for the eradication of human diseases including cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders. Our translational research programs are designed to further understanding of unique mechanisms by which heat shock protein-based drugs function. This is important because it is with this knowledge that we can develop even more potent drugs. In addition, we have preclinical tumor animal models and collaborate with clinician scientists in clinical trials.
