Research Interest

Dr. Igor B. Roninson research interest comprises in the following areas: 1) discovery and characterization of novel targets for cancer treatment through functionbased genomics; 2) developing personalized cancer therapy based on the identification of key molecular targets in individual tumors and matching the target profile with drugs acting on the identified targets; 3) studying mechanisms and consequences of different tumor cell responses to chemotherapy and radiation, in particular senescence and mitotic catastrophe; and 4) studying the mechanisms and developing small-molecule inhibitors of a transcriptional damage response pathway implicated in cancer, alzheimer’s disease, and viral diseases.
