He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California at San Diego. Dr. Hunter's interests are in the mechanisms of signal transduction by tyrosine kinases and the pathways activated downstream of these tyrosine kinases that regulate cell growth, cell migration and differentiation. His group also studies cyclin-dependent protein kinases and other protein kinases that regulate progression through the cell cycle and the response to DNA damage, and how protein ubiquitination is used as a means of regulating signaling pathways and the cell cycle.
