Targeting mitotic regulators in cancer cells for potential treatment
POON Randy Yat Choi
Mitosis is a brief but critical time during the cell cycle. Many anticancer therapies are based on targeting the mitosis of cancer cells. The project involves the investigation of several novel mitotic regulators and to evaluate if small-molecule inhibitors of key mitotic components are useful as anticancer agents.
