    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research interests are in the areas of molecular biology and gene expression, cancer biology, and therapeutics. Our research goal is to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of arsenic toxicity in various carcinoma cell lines including colon and lung and breast cells. Research activities in my laboratory include i) studies to evaluate the apoptotic mechanisms, oxidative stress, and genotoxic mechanisms; and ii) to determine whether arsenic trioxide induces changes in associated with arsenic trioxide toxicity.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
