Dr. Jayantha Debanth's laboratory focuses on how autophagy, a fundamental catabolic process in which a cell literally “eats itself”, contributes to cell survival and cancer progression. His lab utilizes cell biological, biochemical and proteomics approaches combined in vivo murine cancer models to determine the role of autophagy in cancer metabolism, cell survival and oncogenic transformation; delineate the role of autophagy in breast cancer progression and metastasis in vivo; and dissect the biological and biochemical functions of the molecules that control autophagy (called ATGs) to ultimately exploit this process for therapeutic benefit.
