Research Theme

Organization

♦ Cancer Metastasis Control Center (CMCC)

   PI: Prof. Ji-Joon, Song


   Cancer Metastasis Control Center (CMCC) focuses on understanding the mechanisms of cancer metastasis, i.e., the spread of cancer to other parts of body and developing means that 
   control this deadly process. Our center specifically puts an emphasis on deciphering epigenetic mechanisms involved in cancer progression and metastasis. Our studies will set the stage
   for the development of new anti-cancer therapeutic drugs that control cancer metastasis and eventually benefit patients and their families who suffer from cancer.


   Target Research Area:

   -Understanding epigenetic mechanism of cancer metastasis

   -Identify epigenetic target and biomarker of cancer metastasis

   -Provide structural platform of epigenetic target for drug development

   -Natural products and cancer metastasis
