Riese Laboratory

Auburn University Department of Drug Discovery & Development


Here you will find news and updates about my lab here at Auburn University.

Our work is focused on characterizing signal transduction by the signaling network comprised of EGF family peptide growth factors and ErbB family receptor tyrosine kinases. We are interested in deciphering the roles that these growth factors and receptors play in human malignancies. We are interested in how signaling specificity of this network is conferred and regulated. And we are particularly interested in developing novel cancer chemotherapeutic agents that leverage our emergent insights into this signaling network.

The links accessible from the pull-down menu at the top left of this page will direct you to news about our group, publications, presentations, contact information and more.

Please feel free to contact me concerning employment or educational opportunities in my research group, or if you are interested in a collaborative research relationship.
