Our group is involved in the development of gene therapy vectors that can target and eradicate tumor cells in vivo, whether they be localized or spread throughout the body. We utilize state of the art approaches to achieve this goal, including in vivo imaging. Also we are engaged in studies of the high affinity laminin receptor, understanding its role in cancer, and its structure. Other efforts in the lab are directed at discovering novel therapeutic agents for viral diseases and neurological diseases such as Alzheimers.
