Cellular Insights Into Cancer

2

Researchers at the Technion are continuing to investigate the underlying mechanisms governing cellular growth and death, in health and disease.  The findings from these studies contribute to the development of newtherapeutic approaches for different types of cancer.  At the Janet and David Polak Cancer and Vascular Biology ResearchCenter, headed by Professor Ciechanover, an interdisciplinary teamof researchers is studying the normal development and cancerousdysregulation of basic biological processes, in order to identify moleculartargets for early detection, intervention and cure of the disease.
