The project also extends this issue into cancer models that overlap in epithelial stem cell biology. The project covers the entire range of drug discovery and development, but current goals are focused on pharmacology and toxicology to enable the next step to clinical application. Activities include studies in mice and rats in vivo to assess mechanism, pharmacokinetics, and toxicokinetics, as well as working in collaboration with lab members performing medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, structural and cell biology to define drug-target interactions and signaling mechanism of action. In addition, there will be collaboration with CRO- and biotech-based activities.
