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. Dr. Oghumu has co-authored numerous articles appearing in well-known publications, including International Journal of Cancer, International Journal of Pharmaceutics and Molecular Oncology.
