    Collapse Overview
    My main research focus is to understand how HER3 (a member of the EGRF/HER family of receptor tyrosine kinases) functions in physiologic signaling and how this function is perturbed in cancer cells. In one project, I’m doing structure-function studies of HER2 and HER3 in HER2-positive breast cancer to identify new structural features that are critical for signaling so that we can develop a new generation of drugs that are both highly effective and have fewer side effects than the current treatment regimen for these patients. In another project, I’m working on the development of novel SynNotch CART cell therapy to target HER2-positive breast tumors. Apart from these, I am also involved with several other projects that are currently going on in our lab

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
