Cancer Biology and Immune Cell Function

The overall goals of Cancer Biology and Immune Cell Function research at Michigan State University is to examine the molecular mechanism of cancer with a focus on cancer cell signaling, cell growth, proliferation, and metabolism both in cancer cells and immune cells. A deeper understanding of the interaction between the host immune system and malignant tumors will allow for new and innovative ways to treat cancer. The program brings together investigators with experience in cancer biology, immunology, physiology, cell signaling, systems biology, developmental biology, and drug discovery.
