Dr. Aqeilan studies the molecular aspect of cancer biology aims to uncover the genes (coding and non-coding) that contribute to transforming an incipient cell. Genes, tumor suppressors or oncogenes, are key players in this process. Their inactivation or activation, respectively, is a hallmark of almost all cancers. Learning how do these genes work is very important for treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
