Dysregulation of cellular processes that control cell growth and proliferation, differentiation, and death can lead to the development of cancers.  Research in the department focuses on these topics, as many are associated with virus infection.  In addition, host responses to tumor antigens is another area of interest within the department, as this offers promise for the development of therapeutic vaccines against some cancers. 

Areas of interest include: regulation of cellular differentiation in response to cytokines, B lymphocyte differentiation, lymphomagenesis, response to viral pathogens, and delineation of cellular death pathways.
