Research Abstract

Our main research contributions have been in the fields of multistep carcinogenesis, and in signal transduction, cell cycle control mechanisms underlying the switch between keratinocyte growth differentiation. In particular, over the last few years my laboratory has played a significant role in two major areas : 1) Tyrosine and phosphorylation in keratinocyte differentiation control and 2) The role of the cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor p21Cip1/WAF1 in growth/differentiation control and tumorigenesis.
