Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention

Steve Oghumu, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program at the OSUCCC – James, where his research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of oral carcinogenesis and black raspberry-mediated oral chemoprevention.

He seeks to identify discrete significant mediators that can be exploited in preventive or therapeutic strategies to reduce oral cancer development risk.

One of his recent research projects indicates targeting macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a promising strategy for oral cancer prevention or therapy.
