To discover and develop more effective cancer treatments through pharmacology-based preclinical research. The guiding principal is that a fundamental understanding of the biology of molecular targets in cancer is key for discovering and developing innovative therapeutic strategies and for overcoming drug resistance.
- To understand the biology of key molecular targets in cancer that drive cell growth, proliferation, and survival so that they can be effectively targeted for cancer therapy.
- To determine the modes of action and mechanisms of resistance to anticancer agents.
- To discover and develop novel therapeutics and drug delivery technologies for more effective cancer treatment.
