Purpose of center:
The mission of the Center for Cancer Prevention Research is to conduct fundamental/mechanistic research that will lead to the reduction of cancer incidence in humans. Cancer prevention is in its infancy, and strong mechanistic research is needed to develop this important field. We plan to further our studies on the use of dietary constituents and synthetic drugs as well as their combinations as chemopreventive agents. We will enhance our research efforts on agents that selectively induce apoptosis in neoplastic and pre-neoplastic cells, specific inhibitors of the arachidonic acid metabolism pathways, and selective receptor modulators. We plan to discover novel agents, molecular targets and biomarkers, and translate cancer prevention research to humans.
