Research Summary

My research is focused on understanding regulation of cell signaling by post-tranlational modifications in cancer cells. Specifically, we are using targeted proteomic techniques to study phosphorylation dynamics in key signaling networks such as EGFR, RAS/ERK, and AKT/mTOR. The studies are aimed at identifying key regulatory phosphorylation sites relevant to tumor development, progression, response to targeted therapies, and development of resistance. As part of this effort, we are working on novel approaches for quantifying site-specific phosphorylation of low-abundance proteins, such as transcription factors and other nuclear targets of the intracellular signal transduction pathways.
