Intérêts de recherche

My laboratory is working on the apoptotic pathways and how members of the Bcl-2 family of protein may affect their regulation. Alterations of the apoptotic cascade may lead to the development of resistance to chemotherapy as well as new agents that induce apoptosis. These studies are thus essential to provide a better understanding of how tumor cells may develop resistance.
