My Research

We use a variety of molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemical techniques to determine how cells adapt to cellular stress (e.g. hypoxia and nutrient deprivation).  We are specifically interested in how cancer cells adapt to their microenvironment, with the hope that disrupting these adaptive responses can serve as effective therapies. Over the past several years we have focused on a RNA surveillance mechanism termed nonsense mediated RNA decay (NMD).  We have found that NMD is turned off by a diverse number of cellular stresses.  Accordingly, NMD is inhibited in tumors.  The inhibition of NMD activates several pathways implicated in cancer, and helps cells grow as three dimensional tumors.
