Nihal Ahmad Head Shot
Nihal Ahmad, PhD - Email

Professor
Dermatology Research Laboratories

Research Summary
The long-term goal of Ahmad laboratory is to be able to make an impact on the quality of human life through cutting-edge biomedical research. To achieve this goal, we want to define the critical molecular and biochemical events in the process of cancer development that will help us identify the targets for disease management. Using this knowledge, we want to be able to develop new approaches and strategies, which could ultimately be translated from the bench to the bedside, for the prevention and/or treatment of cancer. Thus, our research is focused on two broad and complimentary research areas; 1) cancer biology, and 2) prevention and experimental therapeutics of cancer.

Vladimir Speigelman Headshot
Vladimir Spiegelman, MD, PhD - Email

Professor
Dermatology Research Laboratories

Research Summary
Our lab is focused on the understanding of molecular pathways and environmental factors that lead to development of human malignancies, and employment of newly acquired knowledge for eradication of cancer. Our research focuses on the mechanisms that govern the turnover of short-lived mRNAs that encode important regulators of cell proliferation, death and differentiation and the implications of this turnover for tumor development. The mechanisms regulating mRNA degradation, its alterations in human cancers and its potential ability of therapeutic modality are of primary interest.
