Rami Aqeilan, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program at the OSUCCC – James. His work explores the molecular aspect of cancer biology in an effort to uncover the genes that contribute to transforming an incipient cancer cell.Understanding how these genes (coding and non-coding) operate is a key to diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Dr. Aqeilan recently co-authored a study that revealed that ITCH pro-tumorigenic functions in breast cancer are mediated in part through the inactivation of the Hippo tumor-suppressor pathway. Over the last several years, Dr. Aqeilan has shared his research in more than 20 articles that have appeared in well-known publications such as Future Oncology, Cell Cycle, Journal of Cellular Physiology and Oncogene.
