Type of Position
One of the hallmarks of cancer pathophysiology is their altered metabolism. This altered metabolism confers rapid growth and proliferation of tumors. Dukhande lab is studying novel metabolic inhibitors that target the metabolic reprogramming in cancer. The project will give students experience in techniques in Pharmacology, Cell biology, and Biochemistry.
Sophomore /Junior in Biology, Health Sciences, Pharmacy.
