Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery and Development

Cancer pharmacology encompasses study of basic mechanisms of signal transduction associated with cell proliferation and apoptosis, mechanism of actions of new anti-tumour agents and discovery of new drugs, Basic mechanism of DNA damage and DNA repairs and development of novel strategies for gene therapy. It also includes investigation on role of growth factors in the progression of tumours and identification of new signal transduction pathway and new receptors. Other areas of cancer pharmacology research include aberrations in the mechanisms of programmed cell deaths associated with tumoral growth, genes associated with tumoral growth, interleukin therapy, free radical generation and chemotherapeutic resistance.
