Our research is in the area of cancer prevention using natural and synthetic products.  Our aims are to identify: (1) individual and combined products which prevent the growth of premalignant and cancer cell types; and (2) determine the cellular targets mechanisms by which these compounds act.  We are also interested in understanding the intricate balance of reactive oxygens in cancer cells and how perturbing this balance can lead to more effective prevention and therapy.
