Understand the promiscuity and redundancy of Chemokine Receptor
Signaling in cancer

Central goal of our lab is to understand the genetic and epigenetic regulations of solid tumor heterogeneity, cancer stem cell plasticity and drug resistance.

It has long been known that solid tumors are heterogeneous in nature and each tumor cell has different tumorigenic potential. Single tumor cell within a heterogeneous tumor is dynamic in nature and a continuously evolving entity. Genetic, epigenetic and micro-environmental cues are known to be the key players in this process and we try to understand the bases of these regulations by analyzing patient sample data as well as utilizing our in-vitro and in-vivo tumor models. Here is our working model that we highlighted in our recent publication.
