Welcome to the Padmanabhan lab!

How does a normal cell become cancerous? What factors enable cancer cells to grow rapidly, evade immune surveillance and metastasize to distant sites? Why are the extant anti-cancer therapeutics ineffective? How can we develop more effective therapeutic strategies that will improve clinical outcome in patients with metastatic disease? These are some of the broad questions our laboratory is interested in.

We employ a multi-disciplinary approach and a broad array of highly specialized molecular, cellular and organismic tools and techniques to seek answers to these questions.
