Cun-Yu Wang, DDS, PhD
Professor and Chair, School of Dentistry, Division of Oral Biology and Medicine
Dr. Cun-Yu Wang's research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of inflammation, apoptosis and oncogenesis. Previously, Wang and his colleagues have discovered that NF-kappaB, a stress-responsive transcription factor, is a major effector of inducible anti-apoptotic mechanisms. Currently, Wang's laboratory works on several important areas related to cancer biology and therapy: regulation of tumor metastasis by NF-kappaB, Wnt signaling and oncogenesis, molecular control of invasive growth of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and human adult stem cells including cancer stem cells.
