GSBS Research Topics: CELL STRUCTURE


Salvatore J. Caradonna, Ph.D. * - Stratford - My laboratory is interested in the post-translational mechanisms that regulate proteins involved in base-excision repair of DNA. We are studying the aberrant pathways that lead to uracil misincorporation into DNA and strategies that may exploit these pathways for cancer drug development. We are also involved in the study of atypical cyclin-like proteins that affect cell-cycle phase transitions. Email: caradonn@umdnj.edu

Dimitri G. Pestov, PhD * - Stratford - We study the mechanisms of ribosome biogenesis in mammalian cells in connection with regulation of cell growth and proliferation. Our major goal is to understand how the accuracy of ribosome assembly is controlled at the molecular level and how defects in this process contribute to human disease. Email: pestovdg@umdnj.edu
