Long-term research interest of my laboratory includes developing comprehensive treatment/prevention strategies for prostate, breast and ovarian cancer. These strategies are directed to tumor cells and/or immune system using natural and synthetic products as a single agent or in combination with conventional therapeutics.
Our research approach involves mechanistic studies to define the role of chemokines in cancer metastasis (i.e. detachment, motility, adhesion, invasion, survival and tumor growth at distant sites) as well as developing strategies to inhibit metastasis and enhance chemotherapeutic efficacy. Additionally, we are developing methods to overcome tumor induced immune suppression using natural products that treat/prevent cancer as a single agent or in combination with traditional therapeutics.
