We are a cancer research laboratory located in the Center for Health Disparities & Molecular Medicine at Loma Linda University's School of Medicine in Loma Linda, CA. We are dedicated to serving our society through rigorous cancer-focused research and the training of students and post-doctoral fellows to be outstanding scientists. We study the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) protein survivin and specifically how it lends to the aggressive nature of the many cancer types that are associated with it. It is our desire to see a cure to cancer in our life time.
It is our mission to advance the understanding of cancer, and
train and inspire the next generation of scientists.
