J. Silvio Gutkind, Ph.D., is a scientist with a passion for exploiting the emerging information on dysregulated signaling circuitries and individual genomic and molecular alterations to develop new precision therapies to prevent and treat cancer. His laboratory has focused on the study of growth-promoting signal transduction pathways, the nature of... read morethe dysregulated signaling networks in cancer, and on the use of genomic, proteomic, and system biology approaches to study cancer initiation and progression. Specifically, they have shown that human and virally-encoded G proteins and G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) can display potent oncogenic activity.
