The BU-BMC Cancer Center’s mission is to provide high-quality patient care in combination with innovative research programs that will directly transform cancer management through the discovery of personalized approaches for cancer detection and treatment. Inherent in this vision is the focus on understanding the molecular events associated with cancer initiation and progression in high-risk populations, and the direct translation of these findings into the clinical realm.

(BioMed Central, 2007-1-26)INTRODUCTION. Cancer is a leading cause of death in Americans. We have identified an inducible cancer avoidance mechanism in cells that reduces mutation rate, reduces and delays carcinogenesis after carcinogen exposure, ...
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 1995-11)Ultraviolet (UV)-associated cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Approximately 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancer and 65% of melanoma are attributable to UV exposure and theoretically could be eliminated by ...
Aberrant Cytoplasm Localization and Protein Stability of SIRT1 is Regulated by PI3K/IGF-1R Signaling in Human Cancer Cells (Ivyspring International Publisher, 2010-10-7)SIRT1, an NAD-dependent histone/protein deacetylase, has classically been thought of as a nuclear protein. In this study, we demonstrate that SIRT1 is mainly localized in the nucleus of normal cells, but is predominantly ...
