Topic status: In progress


Our lab is interested in the role the EphB4 receptor tyrosine kinase plays in prostate cancer. This project is to validate gene expression changes that are associated with ligand-dependent and ligand-independent EphB4 signaling.

Research activities

Prostate cancer cell culture, protein extraction, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, silver staining, Western analysis, gene expression analysis.

Expected outcomes

Contribution to research activities that will help to define the role of EphB4 in prostate cancer.
