Dr. Bob Eisenman’s research is focused on the MYC network: a group of genes that are important for normal growth and development but, when mutated, are profoundly involved in a multitude of human cancers. All of these factors encode gene-regulatory proteins that control cellular programs in response to signals from the environment. Dr. Eisenman’s laboratory uses genetic and molecular analyses to understand in detail the functions of these proteins and the pathways they control with the eventual goal of modulating their functions as a means of treating cancers.
