The Pollock lab utilizes chemical biology techniques, biochemical methods, and organic synthesis to understand breast cancer and lung cancer development and progression. In particular, we are interested in nuclear receptor function, phosphorylation signaling pathways, and the link between cancer and inflammation. In addition, we use proteins to do interesting chemistry like detection or sequestration of metabolites.
